California: Army Vet Kills 3 and Commits Suicide at Veterans’ Home

HeadlineMar 12, 2018
H3 us veteran kills three women

In Northern California, police say a military veteran opened fire on a veterans’ home in Napa Valley Friday, killing three women before taking his own life following a standoff with police. The three victims—Jennifer Gonzales, Christine Loeber and Jennifer Golick—worked for the Pathway Home nonprofit, which helps military veterans overcome PTSD and transition back into civilian life. The shooter, 36-year-old Albert Wong of Sacramento, was a military veteran and former patient at the center who was kicked out of the program just days before the shooting spree, after he allegedly threatened its employees. Wong was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army after serving more than three years’ active duty, including a one-year deployment to Afghanistan. He had a number of military decorations, including an Expert Rifle Marksmanship Badge.
