Wang Ruxin, 74, was shot and killed last week outside his home in Nashville, Tennessee.
Wang Ruxin’s wife of 48 years was the one to discover his lifeless body. “I saw him lying there,” Zhai Wang said, using her son, Yun Wang, as a translator. “He wasn’t breathing.”
“She heard two gunshots, and afterward she tried to look around for my dad. She came out and she saw him lying there breathless,” said the victim’s son.
Witnesses to the crime told officers that they saw young people fleeing the scene. “The local police told me there might be four suspects, and two suspects – a 15-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy – were arrested,” said Yun Wang, according to China Daily.
Wang and his wife moved to the U.S. two months ago after their son urged them to be closer to him in their retirement. “I tried to let them enjoy their retirement [life]. I take them [traveling] across the world. I just didn’t know it would end up like this,” said Yun Wang.
Their family is still in a state of shock after the death of their beloved father, grandfather, and husband.
“My mother and I couldn’t sleep on the first day after the event. We just talked about my dad.
“Although my father could not speak English, he was always smiling. I don’t understand why someone would be so cruel to such a nice person.”
“You look at the Las Vegas shooting, you look at the Orlando shooting [and] you think it is so far away from you, but it’s not. I couldn’t imagine [it could] happen to our family, but it does, it did,” Yun Wang said.
The investigation is currently ongoing; anyone with any information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
