The Confrontation

Bodycam footage showed the police sergeant and a security guard struggling to restrain Yang. As the suspect turned towards them, he made multiple downward swinging motions with the knife. Two more police officers arrived at the scene, and the sergeant, stepping back, shot the suspect at close range. Yang was pronounced dead at a hospital.

No Other Injuries

No one else was injured during the incident. However, the pepper spray that was unleashed prior to the officers’ arrival caused those in the lobby, including the sergeant, to cough.

International Response
