2 chinese usc grad students shot in an e46



Ying Wu, Ming Qu Murdered in BMW: Some in China Blame USC Grad Students for 'Showing off Their Wealth'

While hundreds of USC students and staff gathered at the Tommy Trojan statue last night to pay their respects to Ying Wu and Ming Qu -- the electrical-engineering grad students murdered early Wednesday morning -- a debate raged on Chinese news sites and comment boards over whether Wu and Qu were asking to get shot.

They were sitting in a used BMW worth $10,000 that had recently been purchased by Qu, according to their friend Deng Kaifu...

http://blogs.laweekly.com/informer/2...off_wealth.php

Was looking up more info on the Woodland Hills shooting and came across this article. The only explanation so far is a car jacking or robbery, didn't expect an e46 to still be a target for that kind of stuff. stay safe fanatics

Yeah, just saw that a short while ago on a friend's facebook page. Pretty sad.

It was all around weird. Dark tinted windows that were hard to see in, gunshots to the head, car wasn't stolen, one of the people was able to drag themselves from their car.

In this case, the anger might be misguided. Wu was living in a cheap apartment at "gang-infested" Raymond and 27th -- a contributing factor to the 1 a.m. street shooting.

He was living in the hood.

Ever since I was 16 rocking my e36 318i worth 10K people assumed I was rich and spoiled. That e46 is hardly 'big ballin' by todays standards. Probably the result of a rough neighborhood.

I knew a Viet kid who was on welfare but drove a brand new Audi with custom 19's. Love America.

I read this yesterday, and read it as an attempted car-jack, but I was sure its was a e90/e92

what could be the chances he was a e46 member?

..pretty high..quite sad we could have lost one of our own to violence.

Being reserved enough to walk up to the car and shoot one person twice in the head and lethally shoot the other victim with one shot? Hell, whenever a shootout happens up here there are bullets all over and rarely does anybody die. And what more the car wasn't stolen?

Doesn't sound like any of the bad neighborhood violence I've ever heard or dealt with.

Honestly it sounds like either a setup or personal hit.
