A Vietnamese man was fatally shot in what police say was a random shooting just outside a Walmart in Frisco, Texas, last week.
What happened: Two people with multiple gunshot wounds were found in the parking lot of the store on Preston Road and Hickory Street after 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16. Despite life-saving measures, Dung Doan, 62, succumbed to his injuries, while Zachary Lowe, 20, is expected to recover.
About Doan: Family members identified Doan in a GoFundMe page organized to help with funeral costs and his son’s education. According to the campaign, Doan immigrated to the U.S. last year and worked full-time at a bakery on minimum wage.
Doan’s wife reportedly immigrated a year earlier and is currently working as a chef’s assistant. One of their two children, aged 19, is an international student in Toronto.

What his family is saying: Doan’s niece, Kaitlin Nguyen, who set up the GoFundMe, said he lived in an apartment just across the store. Aside from his wife and son, she said Doan is survived by a daughter whom “part of her still hopes that he would come back.”
“I’m sure he never thought something like this could happen in America, right? It’s supposed to be a better place, a safer place,” Nguyen told FOX 4. “And how scared he was when he was taking his last breath. And his family couldn’t be there.”
Whoever fired the bullets is/are still on the loose.
“The murderer needs to be put away and not out there hurting other people,” she told NBC DFW.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Frisco Police Department at (972) 292-6010. Tips may also be texted to 847411, beginning the message with “FRISCOPD.”
