The victims, six of whom were women of Asian-descent, have been identified as Soon Chung Park, 74, Hyun Jung Grant, 51, Suncha Kim, 69, Yong Ae Yue, 63, Delaina Ashley Yuan, 33, Paul Andre Michels, 54, Xiaojie Yan, 49, and Daoyou Feng, 44. Robert Aaron Long, 21, has been identified as the shooter and is currently facing eight counts of murder. 


Since the onset of the COVID pandemic a year ago, Asian-Americans have been targeted in nearly 3,800 hate incidents, as reported by the New York Times.

Stallion denounced the hate and racism on her Instagram and shared that she is partnering with others to fight anti-Asian sentiments.
