The police department said that based on the preliminary information, detectives believe Bin shot Ly inside the business. After killing Ly, Bin went to the parking lot of the company’s property and shot and killed himself.

Officers recovered a firearm near Bin’s body. Police also conducted a sweep of the entire building to ensure there were no additional victims.

“Workplace violence can include physical, verbal, and psychological abuse. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health defines workplace violence as ‘an act or threat of violence on a spectrum that ranges from verbal abuse to physical and even lethal assault towards persons at work or on duty,'” a release from police stated.

The company where this shooting occurred is cooperating with the investigation. Detectives are still working to determine the motive behind the shooting.

Anyone with information about this case should call 801-799-3000 and reference case 24-48513.
