Binghamton siege

 

 

 

 

 

A gunman has killed at least 13 people at a US immigration advice centre at Binghamton in New York state

 

 

The man, who also took dozens of people hostage, was later found dead inside the building.

 

 

In what the police took to be evidence of preparation and premeditation, the assailant had driven a
borrowed car up against the center's back door to barricade it against escape, then had walked in
 the rain around to the front to begin the attack.

Several people were injured during the standoff, four of them critically,
but all surviving hostages were eventually released.

 

 

Footage from WBNG-TV showed four people being carried from the scene.

 

 

Heavily-armed police, backed by commandos and FBI agents, swarmed
 into the area and surrounded the building.

 

 

It is thought that the man opened fire on a group of people writing their US citizenship exams.

 

 

New York Governor David Paterson said it was a tragic day for the state.

 

 

At the gunman's home in Johnson City on Friday night, the police were seen removing a rifle case, a box
with a picture of a rifle on the side, and two black boxes that may have been handgun cases.

Remembering the Victims

 

The 13 people killed when a gunman opened fire Friday at an immigration services center in Binghamton,
N.Y., were from all points of the globe: the United States, China, Haiti, Vietnam, Iraq, Brazil, the Philippines
and Pakistan. Left, mourners outside the Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier in Johnson City for a
memorial service for Parveen Ali, from Pakistan, and Layla Khalil, a native of Iraq.

"She was to come to my graduation this year," said Mustafa, 17.
"She said, 'I want to see you graduate in America.'"

 

 

Mrs. Khalil, 57, had immigrated from Jordan seven months ago after fleeing the violence in Iraq, said
Ehtisham Siddiqui, president of the Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier. "That's one of the ironies
of the situation," Mr. Siddiqui said. "Her husband was just telling me how they were so happy to be in
such a peaceful place at last."

Omri Yigal, 53, left, first heard that his wife, Dolores, also 53, had escaped the shooting.
He later learned that she had not.

 

 

Ms. Yigal's passport. She and her husband led a quiet life in Binghamton. A homemaker from the
Philippines, she stayed home for most of the day, washing clothes by hand, ironing Mr. Yigal's T-shirts
and boxer shorts. She enrolled, reluctantly, at the association for English classes, the first step to
finding work, maybe as a baby sitter or a classroom aide, Mr. Yigal said.

Maria and Lubomyr Zobniw were married for 37 years. For the past four years, Maria worked part
time as a caseworker at the American Civic Association, where she was killed along with 12
other people by gunman Jiverly Wong.

 

 

Among the 13 people Jiverly Wong shot dead was 35-year-old Hong Xiu Mao,
a jovial, hardworking woman whom friends knew as "Amy."
