California Dr. Shoots And Kills Attacker In Self-Defense

posted on April 29, 2017

A Bakersfield doctor was forced to take the life of a man who unexpectedly attacked and beat him. BPD investigators said that Dr. Edwin Zong, owner of Garden Oasis Medical, was talking with a man who appeared to be in his forties, and was interested in becoming a new patient. 

Police said the discussion between the two then turned into an argument, just before the suspect tried to rob the doctor. Zong retreated to his office and took a gun from his desk, firing three rounds at the suspect and fatally striking him in the torso. The doctor sustained injuries to his head and face and was transported to the hospital in stable condition. Another man in bandages was handcuffed at the scene and also taken to the hospital. During the investigation, officers located the gun and determined it was legally registered to Dr. Zong.
