Police: Double shooting was attempted homicide, suicide

NORCROSS - Investigators said a deadly shooting Oct. 30 involving a husband and wife was an attempted homicide and apparent suicide.

Norcross Police Chief Dallas Stidd said Hoi Lie Chan, 26, shot her husband, 30-year-old David Wei Chin, twice in the abdomen at about

10:40 p.m. before turning the gun on herself in their 3251 Greenwood Oak Drive home.

Police said responding officers heard a gunshot from the residence as they arrived on scene at about 10:43 p.m.

Chan was pronounced dead at the hospital. Chin is at Grady Memorial Hospital, where his last known condition was critical. Stidd said Chin is breathing with the help of a ventilator.

Earlier in the investigation Stidd said that Chin "said some things that didn't add up," and that police wanted to talk to him. Because of Chin's condition, investigators still have not been able to interview him.

The incident is still being investigated as to what led up to the shootings, but Stidd said it is clear that Chin was the victim.

"We were able to determine that (Chan) was the shooter and there will be no charges filed," Stidd said. "That's all I really know."

It is unclear whether both lived at the home, but Stidd said it was the listed residence for the couple. He said he is unaware of any protective orders having been issued, but that there appeared to be problems in the marriage.

"Apparently, they were having domestic problems and were seeking a divorce, but at what stage they were in that, I don't know," he said.

An infant boy was in the home at the time of the shooting and is reportedly in the custody of a relative. He was unharmed.

"It's all just very tragic," Stidd said.
