US man was accused of hate crime After three Asian-American women were shot in Texas

United States: A man was charged on Tuesday with multiple crimes, including committing a hate crime, after he was accused of shooting three Asian-American women at a hair salon.
According to the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, 37-year-old Jeremy Terrence Smith was indicted for the May 11 shooting at a saloon in Koreatown, Dallas.

According to the claim, Smith entered the saloon and fired 13 shots from a 22-caliber rifle, injuring three women and endangering four others.
According to the statement, "Smith is alleged to have deliberately selected the complainants because of prejudice or prejudice against Asian-Americans."

A police affidavit said Smith's girlfriend told police detectives she had been having delusions about Asian Americans since she was in a car accident with a man of Asian descent two years ago. She claimed that due to the confusion, she was admitted to several mental health facilities.

Smith's girlfriend told police that whenever he is around an Asian-American, "he gets the illusion that an Asian mob is following him or trying to hurt him." She claimed she was let go for "verbally attacking" her Asian-American boss.

The indictment counts each of the seven counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a hate-crime escalation against Smith. Each count carries a prison sentence of five to 99 years.

Myth is still in custody in Dallas County on a $700,000 bond. Messages seeking comment from his lawyer were not immediately responded to.

Violence against Asians has increased rapidly in recent years. Asian-Americans' anger and fear intensified last year when six women of Asian descent were among eight people killed in shootings at massage parlors in and around Atlanta.

And earlier this month, a West Texas man was sentenced to 25 years in prison for attacking an Asian family outside a Midland, Texas, department store in 2020 because he believed they The Chinese were and were to blame for the Covid-19 pandemic.
