The man accused of opening fire at a church in California is a Chinese immigrant who was allegedly motivated by hate for Taiwanese people.
The 68-year-old man is accused of killing one and injuring five others before members of the Taiwanese congregation disarmed him and hog-tied him using extension cords.
The Orange County Sheriff's Department said in a statement that they recovered two firearms at the scene and that the suspect was not believed to live in the area.
The suspect, who is being held on $1 million bail, has been charged with one count of murder and five counts of attempted murder.
The shooting comes as communist China is rapidly ramping up its military capabilities to challenge the United States for dominance in Asia.
Part of that military build up includes developing the capability to invade and takeover Taiwan, which China claims belongs to its country.
