Back in 2011, Douglas Yim invited his friend Dzuy Dunh Phan, as well as another buddy Paul Park, to his apartment in Oakland to smoke weed, snort cocaine, drink booze, and play video games. It’s every guy’s fantasy, except for the part when the super-religious Yim shot and killed Phan with his AR-15 rifle after he mocked his belief in God.
Oh yeah, and Phan brought up Yim’s father dying of a stroke, which is kind of a dick move.
Park testified that Phan and Yim began discussing God as they played video games, with Phan verbally provoking Yim about his belief in God and asking him where God was when he lost a game.
Mr Phan also raised the subject of Yim’s father’s death from a stroke at which point a furious Yim hurled the console controller at the television and retreated to his bedroom to fetch an assault rifle. He returned to the room with his AR-15 rifle and shot Phan, who was reportedly an atheist, six times. (Via)
No one tell Ricky Gervais about this story — I’m still mad at the guy who introduced the Internet to him.
