"This type of abuse doesn't happen overnight. It can start with verbal abuse, escalate to physical abuse and eventually end in death which is unfortunately what happened today," said Rae Pardini.
Nurses and patients ran frantically out of the medical center when they say Neng Moua pointed a gun at a 33-year-old woman.

"Running, screaming crying, trying to find a way out. Trying to lock themselves into other rooms," said Tou Vang.

Vang, his wife and children were at a routine doctor's appointment. He was less than ten feet away when he says he saw Moua walk into the building with a shotgun wrapped up in a bedsheet.

"He was real focused, I never seen somebody that focused before. It was traumatizing," added Vang.

Vang described Moua forcing the women to the ground and punching her in the head as she struggled to grab the weapon. "She let go of the gun and he just shot her in the chest," said Vang.

Police say Moua and the victim had five children together. Officers have been called to intervene between the two 11 years ago for a domestic violence situation. Those at the Majaree Mason Center believe Moua's latest outburst was part of a larger pattern of abuse.

"This type of abuse doesn't happen overnight. It can start with verbal abuse, escalate to physical abuse and eventually end in death which is unfortunately what happened today," said Rae Pardini.

Those who escaped the chaos say they'll never forget the victim's screams before she died. Now they're praying for the children left behind.

"Now no one is going to teach them how to grow up, ride a bike, fly kites or tie their shoes," said Vang.

The Marjaree Mason Center offers counseling to victims of abuse as well as anger management classes to abusers.
