There was a reported armed robbery that led to a gunfight, leaving two suspects and one house owner dead. This case is still an ongoing investigation as to why the Asian household was targeted.
The two armed men were half-brothers, identified as Elijah Mays Sr., 27, and Xavier Williams, 23, and from Sacramento. It was reported that these men entered an Asian American household in Fresno on Tuesday morning at 8 A.M.
It is still unknown to why these suspects chose this house or what their motives were; they have past criminal records (included both robbery and home invasion) and were affiliated with a violent street gang, which suggested that this was an attempt at an armed robbery.
Once the intrusion began, Chong Yee Yang, the 69-year-old father of the family, warned his children and one of the sons pulled out an AR-15, which sparked the gun fight.
The intruders and the father of the family were killed in the shootout. The 30-year-old son of the victim sustained a gunshot injury to his shoulder.
It is still unknown why the family was targeted.
The victim’s sister-in-law stated:
“It’s a very hardworking family, very nice family.
They don’t have any trouble for any people, very quiet family. The mother and father are too old.”

Before the intrusion, the family was celebrating their brother-in-law’s birthday. The burglars entered through the front door without warning.
The Fresno Police’s Lt. Dave Madrigal made a statement:
“It’s a tragic case, very tragic, that there are people out who will victimize an innocent person for no apparent reason.”
