GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - The wounded who survived the shooting rampage at a Grand Prairie skating rink are sharing their eyewitness accounts of what happened.
Hoi Ta and his family moved to North Texas from Vietnam nearly two decades ago in search of a better life. But now nearly all of his children are dead.
Ta himself is nursing two bullet wounds on his side and one in his leg. But through a translator he said the emotional pain is much harder to handle.
“This tragedy came so unexpected that everybody, including himself is still in shock,” the translator said.
The birthday party at Forum Roller World Saturday evening was for Ta’s 11-year-old grandson. It was a party he said was nearly canceled. The night before the boy’s mother, 29-year-old Trini Do, threatened to divorce her estranged husband, 35-year-old Tan Do.
“The boy wanted a party for his birthday so badly that he begged his mother to hold a party for him,” the translator said.
Ta said the mood was tense for the first hour of the party, but there was no sign of trouble until Tan Do got angry with his wife’s family. He then pulled out a gun and began firing repeatedly.
Ta and his elderly wife were among the four wounded. His 28-year-old daughter Michelle , 21-year-old son Kenny, 16-year-old daughter Lynn and 25-year-old daughter-in-law Thuy Nguyen were killed.
The birthday boy begged his father to stop as he held on to his mother in terror, Ta said. But Tan Do still shot her and then turned the gun on himself.
As Trini Do lay dying, Ta said her final words were about her two young children. She wanted to make sure they would grow up taken care of.
“He loves his grandchildren so much. He doesn’t know what to do now,” the translator said.
Ta said his son-in-law had an explosive temper which he often took out on his wife during their 11-year marriage.
“He abused her physically and mentally many many times, but is daughter always forgave him and came back,” the translator said.
Now Ta is trying to forgive the man who killed his children and left his grandchildren unable to fully grasp what happened.
“The two children kept asking where their mother is but he is unable to give the two children the proper answer,” the translator said.
The children are staying with their paternal grandparents.
