Taiwanese President , Rebukes California Shooting. NPR reports Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen condemned the recent shooting at a Taiwanese church in California. As the shooter reportedly held immense hatred for the island of Taiwan, officials ponder whether Chinese propaganda is to blame. President Tsai Ing-wen's office released a statement on May 17, condemning "any form of violence" and expressing condolences for those who lost their lives. According to NPR, the suspected shooter, David Chou, 68, is thought to have ties to China, which opposes the independence of Taiwan. Chou will appear in California state court on May 17. Chou was born in Taiwan in 1953 and is a current U.S. citizen. He has been detained on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. Authorities say Chou's hatred for Taiwan, displayed in hand-written notes found during investigations. could stem from when he lived on the island and encountered mistreatment. Law officials say Chou had hidden firebombs before the church shooting, which caused harm to a gathering of elderly Taiwanese parishioners. In the shooting, one man lost his life. Five others were wounded
