The Vietnamese immigrant who shot dead 13 people in upstate
The Vietnamese immigrant who shot dead 13 people in upstate New York on April 3 before killing himself sent a letter to a U.S. news channel before the attack in which he blamed police for provoking him.

The "Binghamton killer" began his rambling hand-written letter with the words, "I am Jiverly Wong shooting the people."

The letter was dated March 18, but sent to the News 10 Now offices in Syracuse on the day that Wong stormed an immigration center, indiscriminately firing at people.

Two immigration center employees and 11 immigrants were killed in the attack. 26 other people were also wounded.

Written in poor English, the letter also contained photos of Wong together with two handguns and his driving license. He claimed that police had harassed him for 18 years, saying "cop made me lost job...cop put me became poor," as well as stating that police officers had "touched me when I sleeping."

Forty-one-year-old Wong, who took English lessons at the American Civic Association in Binghamton, some 225 km (around 140 miles) from New York City, predicted the attack, saying he could not "accept my poor life" and threatened "at least two people with me go to return to the dust of earth."

"Cop bring about this shooting. Cop must responsible. And you have a nice day," Wong signed off.
