At a press conference on Monday, 16 May, Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes confirmed the lone gunman was David Wenwei Chou, 68, from Los Vegas Nevada. Barnes said the information gathered indicates the shooting was “a politically motivated hate incident.” Banes also noted that Chou had a grievance with the Taiwanese community at large and was concerned about the tensions between the CCP and Taiwan.
Since the incident occurred, Taiwanese Netizens have discovered a man with the same name in online social groups such as DISP BBS who participated in the Las Vegas National Association for China’s Peaceful Unification.
The Association for the Promotion of Peaceful Reunification of the Communist Party of China (NACPU) is a quasi-official Chinese communist organization that advocates the annexation of Taiwan. The NACPU has branches in many countries. Its declared purpose is to “unite people from all walks of life at home and abroad, develop people-to-people exchanges between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait, and promote the peaceful reunification of China under the CCP.
The Association is chaired by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China. His is also the Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese Political Consultative Conference. In 2020, the U.S. Department of State designated the Association as a foreign delegation of the Chinese Communist Party. The Association is a subsidiary body of the United Front Work Department of the CCP.
On Monday, the Taizhou Public Affairs Association (FAPA) issued a statement, saying the gunmen “acted out of hatred for radical political beliefs.” It strongly condemned this “cowardly act” and called on U.S. authorities to prosecute the shooting as a politically motivated hate crime and “list any group to which he belongs as a domestic terrorist.”。
