AMY DUMAS & HER DAD
In Lynn, Massaschusetts, 16-year-old Amy Dumas was shot dead Monday night (May 16) during a home invasion as she tried to protect her wheelchair-bound father, Robert S. Finnerty, who was also killed. Apparently four Asian gang members forced themselves into the family's apartment and shot father and daughter several times. Finnerty was a cancer survivor who was left using a wheelchair after a stroke. Robert's wife Judith Finnerty was in the apartment but was unhurt.
Two men were quickly arrested by police. The accused are "Cambodian-born men" (no further status mentioned) and belong to a local gang, the "Oriental Boys." Two other gangsters are being sought in the killing. At least one of those arrested, Chon Son, "is well known to local police."
