Community Gathers to Remember Family Lost in Tragic East Lansdowne Shooting and Fire Incident

East Lansdowne, Pennsylvania – A community in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, gathered to honor the memory of a family tragically lost in a shooting and house fire incident earlier this month. The devastating event took the lives of six family members on February 7.

The William Penn School District hosted a moving celebration of life service at Penn Wood High School to pay tribute to Xuong Le, his wife Britni McLaughlin-Le, and their children – 10-year-old Xavier, 13-year-old NaKayla, and 17-year-old NaTalya. Together, the community mourned the loss of these beloved individuals.

Authorities have identified Xuong Le’s brother, 43-year-old Canh Le, as the suspected shooter in this heartbreaking tragedy. He, along with the other victims, tragically lost their lives at the scene. Canh Le allegedly shot and killed his family members, as well as two police officers, before the residence was engulfed in flames.

Fortunately, the two police officers involved in the incident have since been treated and released from the hospital. The motive behind Canh Le’s actions remains under investigation, leaving the community and authorities searching for answers in the wake of such a devastating loss.

The somber ceremony served as a reminder of the impact of senseless violence on families and communities. The gathering allowed loved ones, neighbors, and community members to come together in solidarity and support as they navigate the grief and loss caused by this tragic event.

As the East Lansdowne community continues to grapple with the aftermath of this heartbreaking incident, support and resources have been pouring in from surrounding areas.
