Another tragedy wherein a firearm was used took place in the U.S. This time, it left four people dead including the gunman.


Everything happened on March 9, 2018, at the Veterans Home of California located in Yountville. The attacker was identified as Albert Wong and he went to the center to attend a ‘going away’ party of a staff member.

Faith Family America reported that Wong was not invited as he had been kicked out of the program recently. After the police arrived at the scene, they got in an intense standoff with him that lasted almost the entire day.

He then took three women hostages inside of the building and members of the police tried to contact him to negotiate but he refused to do it. Around 6 p.m., the police managed to force their way into the facility but learned that all three hostages and Wong were dead.

On the morning of March 10, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the tragedy. He admitted to being saddened by the situation and mourned the loss of the victims.

They added that they worked closely with those who needed them the most after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and developing PTSD. Finally, they confessed they were ‘devastated’ and sent their support to the families of the victims.
