Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “California church shooting under investigation as an anti-Taiwan ‘hate incident’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Authorities said Monday that the deadly California church shooting is being investigated as a hate crime fueled by the suspect’s reported anti-Taiwan animus.

Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said at a press conference that based on information gathered so far, the Sunday attack was “a politically motivated hate incident, a grievance that this individual had between himself and the Taiwanese community at large.”

The suspect, 68-year-old David Chou, is a naturalized U.S. citizen who immigrated from China. He was being held in lieu of $1 million bail after being booked on one felony count of murder and five felony counts of attempted murder.

“Based on preliminary information in the investigation, it is believed the suspect involved was upset about political tensions between China and Taiwan,” said Sheriff Barnes.

China claims Taiwan is a part of its national territory and has not ruled out force to bring the island under its rule.
