orange county man kills former co-workers, then himself

Some disturbing news last week out of Southern California, of another troubled Asian man -- a disgruntled former employee -- shooting multiple victims, then himself: Police: Suspect in gas company deaths blamed victims for lost job.

37-year-old Phong Thuc Tran, a former employee of Southern California Gas Co., is suspected of killing Hung Duy Dao, who was found dead in the driver's seat of his car, and his former supervisor Charles Santisteban, who was gunned down in his driveway. Tran died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head while in his car parked outside the Anaheim police station.

Tran had worked as a field technician for the Gas Co. for seven years, until he was forced to resign in 2007. He apparently blamed his victims and other employees for losing his job. More here: O.C. police: Alleged gunman blamed victims for job loss.
