Lien Chan's son shot during political rally

Postby cranky laowai » 26 Nov 2010, 22:13

Something on the news about Sean Lien (連勝文), Lien Chan's son, getting shot by a gangster, who was reportedly aiming for someone else. He's alive, though.

8:20 tonight at Yonghe Elementary School (just up the road from where I work). The gangster jumped up in the stage, grabbed him around the neck and shot down through one cheek and out the other. An elderly bystander was also shot (not sure if it was the same shot or not) and killed. Lian is at Tai-Da Hospital.
I have news. Good news from Notting Hill. The consignment of white gold for Mr Anderson has arrived.

"Stable and undergoing surgery".

When Lien got to hospital he was consious and able to speak. He is going to have some operation.
So, they caught the shooter. But, I don't think they know his motive or anything. He was heavily armed. According to a friend of mine who is a cop, he used the wrong gun. If he had used the other gun that he was carrying, Lien would have died.

He's supposed to be stable; and the injury is not life threatening.

Unfortunately the same can't be said for that poor guy who was killed.

The police have the shooter but haven't released details yet.

Apparently it was the same shot, and the bystander was not elderly; he was 29. So I understand second hand.

Yeah, the early reports said it was old guy died of a heart attack.

I was watching the news about an hour ago and it was kinda shameful how the 'green' news channels weren't showing this news (the wife said they;d shown it briefly, but not while I was watching).

Apparently the bullet went through Lien's left cheek and came out the right temple. The trajectory is dangerously close to both the eye and the brain. It's possible the vision in his right eye might be damaged or even lost... let's hope the doctors do their utmost to minimize and fix any damage.
