A beloved 71-year-old grandfather out for a walk in Chinatown was gunned down by a man who shot at him 22 times, including as he lay helpless on the ground, according to prosecutors, leaving his family demanding justice. Alphonso Joyner was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and possession of a revoked firearm owner’s identification card in the death of Woom Sing Tse, who is being remembered as a great family man who lived the American Dream after emigrating from China 50 years ago.
