Job hopeful from Virginia is slain in Oakland
(07-19) 18:06 PDT OAKLAND -- A Virginia computer engineer in the Bay Area for a job interview at Google Inc. was shot and killed in downtown Oakland by robbers who escaped with just $17, police said Monday.
Jinghong Kang, 45, of Fairfax, Va., a father of three sons, was shot near the corner of 19th and Webster streets at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, police said.
Kang had gotten his teeth cleaned earlier in the day and had returned to his rental car with a dental hygienist when he was shot, police said.
His dental appointment was in preparation for a job interview that had been scheduled for Monday at Google in Mountain View, police said. Investigators said Kang and the hygienist knew each other because they had been members of the same church.
She was helping Kang enter directions back to his hotel into the car's GPS system when two men approached them, police said. The men demanded money, and one of them shot Kang, police said. The hygienist was not hurt.
