TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Brawny Taiwanese YouTuber Holger Chen (陳之漢) was shot twice in front of his gym in New Taipei City early Friday morning (Aug. 28) — yet still spoke on camera to his fans immediately after the shooting.
At 2 a.m. on Friday morning, Chen was shot in front of his gym on Renai Road in New Taipei City's Linkou District, reported UDN. According to witnesses at the scene, an armed male fired at Chen three times, inflicting wounds to his right arm, right thigh, and right ankle.
As of 6 a.m., Chen was undergoing surgery to treat the multiple gunshot wounds. Two of Liu's bullets hit the mark, with one round traveling through Chen's right arm and striking his right thigh, causing a comminuted fracture and lodging in the leg. The second bullet entered Chen's right calf and lodged in his right ankle.

I hope that if I die this time, please everyone carry on my spirit, you must carry on my spirit." [FULL STORY]
