Summary:

Documents obtained via FOIA showed that Jiverly Wong, who went on a murderous shooting spree at a social club in Binghamton, New York, had raised red flags during previous interactions with the justice, immigration, and law-enforcement systems. In one letter, Wong's father, Duong "Henry" Voong, expressed concern that his son would obtain a gun and license.

Notes:

The U.S. Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) released Voong's letter in response to a FOIA request. In addition to the letter, the USCIS (previously the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS)) also had an eighty-page dossier on Wong, which included references to other unexplained parts of his life.
