The fatal shooting of Chinese restaurant owner Hong Zheng in Durham last weekend resonated with Lawrence Yoo, the son of first-generation Korean immigrants, whose parents were robbed numerous times in Philadelphia.
This hits home for me, he said.
Yoo, pastor of Durham County's Waypoint Church, says many Asian immigrants keep a low profile in America and don't want to be seen as stirring up or getting mixed up in trouble.
But trouble seeks them out, Yoo said.
I can walk into any largely Asian church and easily find businessmen and women who have robbed before, in minutes.
After Zheng, 42, of Durham was killed in what the family described as an attempted robbery, his family said the incident was the fifth time individuals had broken into or attempted to break into their home since November 2015.
The family said they felt like they were being targeted by the same individuals because they own a Chinese restaurant, China Wok, and were frustrated by the Durham Police Department's response.
One of those individuals, David Jamal Lawson, was arrested in February 2017 charged with multiple felonies, including breaking and entering, in Durham County. He also faced charges in Wake County. Three of the charges are related to the Nov. 25, 2015, breaking and entering at Zheng's home the first of the incidents at the famly's house. Other incidents took place on Jan. 13. 2016; June 4, 2016; and in July 2017.
"Officers were unable to identify suspects, mainly due to a lack of evidence," Glenn wrote.
Initially Lawson remained in jail on a $400,000 bail. His bail was reduced to $100,000 on June 6, 2017, and he was able to get out of jail the next day, according to court documents.

Let me guess. Certain demos are mostly responsible for this criminality, but ultimately white America will be blamed for it?
Savages. Nothing more.
A lot of South East Asians used to get targeted around New Orleans. They armed up and formed gangs. Solved a lot of their issues.
Gotta be racism.
And we all know thats a trait only found in Caucasian DNA
The media has five decades of one sidedness so it must be true
Yet naturalized Asians vote democrat.
One of those individuals, David Jamal Lawson...
Savages. Nothing more.
I would say they’ve been bred by Democrats for their cheap votes. They rob the Asians because they know they work hard and have money.
As Chinese American, I am sadden by this news and surprised that unlike most of Asian families, the family picked up wrong location to live in. They must be newcomers
While their kids get screwed out of admissions and jobs to make room for Duddies
“Yet naturalized Asians vote democrat.”
Yes they do,but they are good citizens.
Most of their stores/restaurants were located in la ghetto, which placed them at even greater risk. So glad I left that hell hole.
Sorry, but a good citizen doesn’t vote Dim.
#6. I know one family that won’t vote Democrat anymore.
The Democrat Party is increasingly the party of city dwellers. Voting Democrat/leftist is driven by population density. The higher the density, the higher the percentage of rats. In general Asian Americans prefer to live in cities, many in very high density communal housing.
This is a very tragic story. They had a firearm, but apparently were not well trained in its use.
I would have had every adult in the family carrying when they left the house, plus I would have had a firearm within reach when inside the house.
I have a Vietnam friend whose parents escaped the Communist regime. He hates the democrats, unfortunately he doesn’t vote.
‘So glad I left Durham after high school and never went back. It’s become a pit.
