Jiverly Antares Wong (aka. Jiverly Voong) was an American rampage killer who killed 13 people and wounded four others at the American Civic Association immigration center in Binghamton, New York, United States on April 3, 2009, before committing suicide.


Those killed were:

  • Parveen Ali, age 26, an immigrant from northern Pakistan[1]
  • Almir Olimpio Alves, age 43, a Brazilian Ph.D. in Mathematics and visiting scholar at Binghamton University, attending English classes at the Civic Association[2]
  • Marc Henry Bernard, age 44, an immigrant from Haiti[3]
  • Maria Sonia Bernard, age 46, an immigrant from Haiti[3]
  • Li Guo, age 47, a visiting scholar from China[3]
  • Lan Ho, age 39, an immigrant from Vietnam[3]
  • Layla Khalil, age 53, an Iraqi mother of three children[4]
  • Roberta King, age 72, an English language teacher who was substituting for a vacationing teacher[5]
  • Jiang Ling, age 22, an immigrant from China[3]
  • Hong Xiu "Amy" Mao Marsland, age 35, a nail technician who immigrated from China in 2006[6]

Among those wounded were:

  • Shirley DeLucia, age 61, the Civic Association receptionist who feigned death and contacted police[7]
  • Long Huynh, age 42,[8] a Vietnamese immigrant whose wife, Lan Ho, was killed. Huynh had tried to shield her with his body,[9] but a bullet that shattered Huynh's elbow ricocheted, striking and killing his wife. Huynh was wounded three more times: he lost a finger to a shot, was hit by a bullet in his chest, and another bullet entered his chin and exited through his cheek.[8]
