It turns out that the alleged killer of Youa Lor was a member of the National Guard as was his accomplice.
Dao Xiong (pictured) is the man accused of shooting Lor to death in order to take his 2003 Nissan 350Z for parts after the victim was trying to sell it on craigslist. His accomplice, Keng Thao, is said to be the mastermind behind the crime. Both are members of the Minnesota National Guard where Thao is a vehicle mechanic.
The Fox affiliate in Minneapolis is reporting that the gun used to shoot Lor was not of military issue.
