Virginia computer engineer in the Bay Area for a job interview at Google Inc. was shot and killed in downtown Oakland by robbers who escaped with just $17, police said Monday.
As usual neither the press or apparently the police gave a description of the killers. As it is Oakland, it is unlikely that the killers were white, most likely they were black, given the location in Oakland at 19th and Webster, a high crime black area of O-town.
Jinghong Kang, 45, of Fairfax, Va., a father of three sons, was shot near the corner of 19th and Webster streets at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, police said.
Perhaps you should email Henry K. Lee at the San Francisco Chronicle, the crime beat reporter, and ask why either he did not give a description of the killers who are on the loose or why the Oakland Police Department did not give a description of the killers. firstname.lastname@example.org There has to be a description; one of the victims survived:
His dental appointment was in preparation for a job interview that had been scheduled for Monday at Google in Mountain View, police said. Investigators said Kang and the hygienist knew each other because they had been members of the same church.
She was helping Kang enter directions back to his hotel into the car's GPS system when two men approached them, police said. The men demanded money, and one of them shot Kang, police said. The hygienist was not hurt.
