“The gunman had placed 4 Molotov cocktail-like devices inside the church, the sheriff said.”

Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said of the victim:

“Understanding that there was elderly everywhere and they couldn’t get out of the premises because the doors had been chained, he took it upon himself to charge across the room and to do everything he could to disable the assailant.”

“The suspect had an absolute bias against the Taiwanese people, its country, as a Chinese or mainland national,” Spitzer added.

“I will tell you that evil was in that church yesterday.”
