The "alleged" gunman? Who shot himself?

"Alleged" bullets shouldn't hurt anyone, should they? Allegedly?

Update: wcco.com reporting the shooter has died. No wasted money on court and supporting him in jail.

Amen. Also, it's my understanding that the recidivism rate of dead criminals is pretty low...

Vang is the most common Hmong last name. Look it up in your phone book and compare it to the Smith's, Anderson's, Lee's, etc. Just sayin'...

If you don't invite a gangbanger to your birthday party you have a better chance of not getting a close friend or family member killed.

Great News - registered gun? What the heck difference does that make? Guns don't kill people - people kill people.

i am not related to geu tou vang, but how could anyone say that someone deserves to die, how could someone say that he would have been a waste of money? i do know him, as a friend. he is a good person. i have known him for a while now. i believe something else happened that night and the police and kong family is just hiding something. knowing tou, he would never taken his own life, he was so outgoing, and loved life. some articles said that there were two guns present and i believe there was another shooter threatening him. also two different bullets were found at the crime scene. so i think the investigators need to dig deeper. i will miss you Tou: your smiling face and good humor. best wishes to you where ever you are.

The only reason he deserved to die is because he shot himself in the head. You said he was a "good person". Are you telling us he was wrongly convicted and sent to prison for severly beating another person? He spent four years in prison. That doesn't sound like a "good person" to me.

Again, people have a better chance of not being shot to death if they don't invite nor attend parties with gangbangers.
