Death

On August 1, 2003, after a hit and run driver crashed into Gong's parked car in the Fairtex Gym parking lot in San Francisco, Gong pursued the car on foot. Gong caught up and confronted the driver, who was still in his car at a nearby intersection. Witnesses say the driver then shot Gong at point blank range and fled in his vehicle. Gong was pronounced dead at the scene.

On August 3, 2003, a man named a "person of interest" in the shooting was confronted at a hotel and, after a lengthy standoff with police, shot himself in the head. No one was ever charged in Gong's death.
