Recovery Efforts Underway at Site of East Lansdowne Home Shooting and Fire

EAST LANSDOWNE, Pa. – An intense recovery effort is currently in progress at the home in East Lansdowne, Delaware County, where a tragic incident occurred. The home burned down after two officers were shot, leading to the recovery of the remains of three members of the Le family, with three other family members still unaccounted for, according to Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer.

The events that unfolded inside the home on Lewis Avenue in East Lansdowne are still difficult to comprehend, according to Chin Le, who claims to be the mother of the shooter. Using her family doctor, Khan Che, to speak on her behalf, Le detailed what she told him went on inside the home before she and her husband escaped.

According to Che, Chin Le’s son, Khan Le, was in an argument with his 10-year-old nephew before the shooting started. Chin Le says he shot five people, including three children, before he killed himself.

The Le family, who moved from Vietnam over 40 years ago and have been living in East Landsdowne since then, is devastated by the incident. Chin Le describes her son, Khan Le, as a 44-year-old, recently divorced man who was out of work. She claims he had no medical or mental issues, according to Che.

The tragedy has shocked the community of East Lansdowne, and as the recovery effort continues, the full scope of the devastation is still being realized. The impact of the event has deeply affected the Le family and the entire community, prompting an outpouring of support and grief.
