Disturbing surveillance footage captured the moment a gunman killed his wife and another man inside a California restaurant. The video shows the man — identified as Jing Yixin, 38 — walking into the Music BBQ Bar in Monterey Park on April 5, taking a gun out of a paper bag and aiming it at Zhaiming Li, 37, who was sitting with Ling Ling Wang, 36, KTLA reported.
Yixin opens fire, striking Li several times as his wife leaps forward and struggles with him before he turns the weapon on her and pumps several bullets into her body. The assailant then calmly reloads, fires additional rounds into the motionless victims and leaves the eatery.
“I heard about six shots and then there was gap,” a witness who did not want to be identified told the news outlet.
“Then I heard another six to eight shots and then that’s when the chefs started walking out, started running,” he added.
Yixin was tracked to the Mexican border, where he was arrested the following day and charged with two counts of murder, KTLA reported.
He and his slain wife have two daughters, ages 9 and 12, according to the station.
“Homicide detectives, with the assistance of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, and the FBI/LAPD Fugitive Task Force, detained the suspect at the Mexican border,” according to an LA Sheriff’s Department statement. The motive in the attack and further information were not immediately unavailable.
