According to the initial investigation, Vuong, his 31-year-old wife and two young children live in Ho Chi Minh City. Due to his jealousy and beatings, at the beginning of the year, his sister-in-law took the children to Bac Lieu to stay with relatives and filed for divorce. Unable to find it for many days, Vuong had an intention to control his 67-year-old mother-in-law, forcing her to point out where his wife and children were.

Vuong went on social media to buy a handgun and 16 bullets. On the evening of April 9, he went to his mother-in-law’s house in Vinh Phuoc A commune, Go Quao district, pulled out a gun, shot many times, then controlled and locked her in the house. Vuong forced the victim to call his wife to return, or else he would shoot him dead.

The police and the local military command appealed to Vuong to release the hostages, but were unsuccessful. When the functional forces broke down the door to rescue the victim, an officer was shot and wounded by Vuong. He continued to put a gun to his mother-in-law’s head, threatening to kill him, forcing everyone to go out.
