Jose Gomez Admits He Tried to Kill Asian Family at Sam’s Club

March 17, 2020

Jose Gomez stabbed two adults and two children at Sam’s Club over the weekend

The 19-year-old suspect who according to investigators, stabbed four people at Sam’s Club in Midland, Texas, told police he was attempting to kill an entire family for being Asian. Gomez has been charged with three counts of attempted capital murder one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

What makes this attack more cold-blooded is the fact that of the three family members who were stabbed, two of them were children. The incident itself would have been much worse if not for the heroic actions of a Sam’s Club employee, Zach Owen, who became the fourth stabbing victim when he interjected himself between the Asian family and Gomez. Mr. Owen ended up needing 30 stitches to his hand and 12 to his leg.

Mr. Owen’s immediate response during the incident was enough time for another Sam’s Club worker and an off-duty Border Patrol Agent to wrestle the knife out of Gomez’s hand and subdue him until Midland Police arrived.

      1. The Sam’s Club employee should get a raise and a metal for his heroic act!

  1. This is happening all over right now, what tragedy. We’re all just people trying to survive, I hate racism.

  2. What the hell is wrong with people man? Ignorance, hatred and bigotry have no place in the United States

    1. When he goes to prison he’s gonna really get it especially he’s fresh young meat. What goes around comes around.

  3. Why so much hatred toward Asians ? Asians are very humbled and kind hearted people. Very hard working and very caring toward families. We came to this country to make our lives better.

    1. True Asian people are kind hearted and wonderful people some of the hardest working people I’ve ever met

      1. Thank you for your kind words sir. We are grateful for your support and we appreciate living in this country so we can make a better living for our family.

  4. We should reward Zach Owen with a medal of honor! He’s the type of ppl we need in this world! Hero/Angel! 😍👏🏻

    1. Whoever do and supports this things will suffer eternal hell on earth while alive and their eternal damnation of their soul.

  8. The same people who are blaming/attacking Asians in America and not the communist government in China are the ones not buying Corona beer and stocking up on toilet paper. Get a grip!

  9. America should make education mandatory and jail time for those who don’t abide. Too much ignorance in this country and this pandemic goes to show the school system has failed miserably. What a disgrace!

  10. We asian be prepared for all attacks from radical people. Trump’s statements made in media persuading people to hate. Meanwhile, rapists and murderers have forgotten who they were labeled. Let’s be loud and clear to the World that Coronavirus is created by those Communist and Racist leaders, NOT by us.
    We Asians got to stand up to defend our rights and, got rid of rapists and murderers.

    1. I am an Asian and i’m proud to be a Trump supporter. Trump is right on call The Chinese Virus but the media has been aggravated the issue.

      Well.
      Most Asian Americans here are the victims of the communists, think about it people. Think about it.

  11. If u guys are American people wanna discriminate about race that will become abig trouble soon or its canna be unsafe for American people trip to visited around in Asian country.

  13. I am Asian myself, I carry a 45 and ready for a punk like this! Try me!! 2 bullets to the brain, 2 to the chest! His whole family would be slaughter! Try me!! You want a war? I take you to war!

  14. When top leaders should stop saying all the times “the VIRUS from CHINA” then asian Americans will get less discrimination and hatress from these uneducated peoples since not all Asians were from CHINA.

  15. I know why they only Asia I want to know too do we to be afraid people or sickness so I we have to afraid both. How can we do

    1. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Zack Owens. You are the true heroes.Your kindness and good deeds are greatly appreciated.Please get well soon. May god bless you with good health.
