Tragedy about our graduate student, Ryan Chen
Dear Chinese Community Leaders,
You may already hear the terrible news about Ryan Chen, a Chinese student in our department of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University. Ryan was shot down and killed outside of a restaurant at China Town last Sunday. This tragedy shocked all his professors and classmates.
Faculty and students in the department had a small memorial service Monday evening. We have developed multiple plans (such as collecting Ryan’s photos for a memorial album, naming a bike routes after Ryan, and making donation to Ryan’s family, etc.) to make the following services for Ryan work out smoothly.
Our faculty and alumni act immediately to push city government and law enforcement authorities to track down the killer(s). The most recent updates were broadcasted Tuesday evening at local ABC13 channel (http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/local&id=5951335). We believe the killer(s) will be caught and brought to justice very soon.
We also hope Chinese community leaders could stand up and work out an immediate plan with business owners to improve Chinatown's safety. Otherwise, as Ms. Ling Luo said in the interview, next victim could be one of us.
Ryan tells us that life is too short. Please spend more time with your family members and friends and also kindly remind them to stay safe.
