NY gunman angry over poor English skills, job loss

The man who police say killed 13 people in a shooting rampage at an immigrant community center was depressed and angry over losing his job and about his poor English skills, officials said Saturday.

Police Chief Joseph Zikuski told NBC’s “Today” that people “degraded and disrespected” the gunman over his poor English. Mayor Matthew Ryan, speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” said the man, believed to be 42-year-old Vietnamese immigrant Jiverly Voong, was angry about his language issues and his lack of employment.
