Police on Sunday identified the six people who died in a shooting at a birthday party at Forum Roller World, on S. Great Southwest Parkway.
The gunman was identified as Tan Do, 35, who killed five family members and wounded four more before taking his own life, according to police.
Police identified the others who were fatally wounded as the gunman’s wife, Trini Do, 29; Lynn Ta, 16, sister of Trini; Michelle Ta, 28, another sister of Trini; Hien Ta, 21, a brother of Trini; and Thuy Nguyen, 29, a sister-in-law of Trini.
“It appears the suspect targeted his estranged wife and her family members,” the police department’s news release said.
Do and his estranged wife were hosting a birthday party for one of their two children in a party room at the skating rink. The couple’s two children were unharmed and are with family members, the release said.
“It was an argument,” said police spokesman Det. John Brimmer. “It escalated to the point where he pulled a gun and started shooting.”
