uc berkeley student fatally shot

I've heard from several folks about this fatal shooting that happened at a Korean bar in Oakland last weekend... 22-year-old Vincent Choi, who was set to graduate from UC Berkeley in May, was shot and killed after a bar dispute turned violent: UC Berkeley Senior Fatally Shot in Oakland.

Choi and his friends were apparently involved in a verbal altercation with a group of seven men and four women. The group allegedly left the bar and waited outside for Choi and his friends to leave. When they came out, there was a fight, and someone started shooting.

What the hell? I'm assuming that the other group was also Korean. Why do I always have to read about Asians starting shit with each other at bars, and then somebody ending up shot? This hits home because I actually have friends who actually go this particular bar on occasion.

More on the shooting here: UC Berkeley student identified as Oakland slaying victim. There are currently no suspects, but the bar apparently had security cameras that were submitted to the police department.
