As the Mayor says, it's a very sad story. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Nguyen, the mother of a 3-year-old son and a 1-year-old daughter, was attacked in her home Tuesday morning, just after her husband, a Wachovia bank executive, left for work.
Her alleged assailant was 22-year-old Raymond Gee, of Oakland, who had apparently been stalking her and her family for several weeks, police believe. Gee gained entry into Nguyen's home through a partially open garage door.
Once inside, Gee attacked Nguyen, repeatedly threatening to kill her, the Chronicle reported. There was no evidence of a sexual assault. ... Nguyen managed to call 911 and text message her husband ... Officers arrived, and Gee fired at officers approaching the house.
More from the Chronicle: "Nguyen escaped into a bedroom, where she barricaded herself with her children, a 3-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter. As she handed the second of her children out the window to police officers, Gee opened fire through an adjoining bathroom wall. Police fired back, and Nguyen was fatally struck in the exchange."
