A picture is beginning to emerge of the Vancouver woman gunned down in front of her young son Wednesday afternoon — and it makes the killing all the more mysterious.
Police said Thuy Yen (Jenny) Vu was the victim of targeted attack when she was shot several times as she sat in her BMW SUV while her three-year-old son sat in the back seat.
It was Vancouver’s 14th homicide of 2011.
Those who knew her are baffled that Vu, 38, would suffer such a fate. She’s been described as devoted to her four children and devoted to her practice of yoga.
“Absolutely the last person that I would think would have had this terrible, terrible event happen,” said Brad Colwell, of Bikram’s Yoga Metrotown, located just west of Boundary Road in Vancouver.
Vu was so devoted to hot yoga, she went to the yoga studio some 350 times in the past four years.
She had just left a class shortly before she was gunned down in front of her million-dollar home.
Colwell was one of the last people to see her alive.
“Severely shocking, especially that fact, smiling and waving and gone, literally gone,” said Colwell, recalling Wednesday. “I can’t imagine the shock in her, her body and her mind. I can’t see how she even saw that coming.”
Police say Vu’s husband, Stephen Michaelson, has been co-operating with the investigation and is not a suspect.
Neither he nor Vu were known to police.
Vu had children from two previous relationships and investigators are looking into her past, saying it’s too early to say if she knew anyone with gang connections.
“There was never ever a hint there was problems or issues,” said Colwell. “Nothing suspicious, nothing hidden.”
