Six arrested in mass shooting that shook Fresno’s Hmong community

Fresno Police announced this week the arrests of six people in the killings of four and injuries to several others, reports the Fresno Bee.

All six suspects have been identified as members of the Mongolians Boys Society Gang. The killings on November 17 at a backyard party were in retaliation for another murder earlier that day of Randy Xiong, 28.

The Visalia Delta Times reports at least one of those attending the party was a member of the Asian Crips, a rival gang the Mongolian Boys blamed for Xiong’s murder.

Police would not say if any of those shot at the backyard party were members of the Asian Crips.

“We see them as victims,” said Police Chief Andy Hall, according to the Delta Times.

Under arrest are Billy Xiong, 25; Anthony Montes, 27; Porge Kue, 26; Jhovanny Delgado, 19, Pao Vang, 30, and Johnny Xiong, 25; all of Fresno.

Prosecutors say it’s possible they may go for the death penalty in the case, although they did not say which of the suspects arrested carried out the shooting.

According to the Fresno Bee, the case broke open during a traffic stop in nearby Clovis.They discovered a fully automatic Glock pistol in Billy Xiong’s car which was traced to the backyard party shootings.

Sia Vang, 23, a person of interest in the mass shooting, remains outstanding.

Killed in that shooting were Phia Vang, 31; Kou Xiong, 38; Kakaxang Thao, 40 and Xy Lee, 23.
