He was vacuuming in his store Tuesday, Feb. 16, while his sister was behind the counter, when two hooded and masked men came into the store with guns. One of the suspects shot Quidit several times and then took off.

Quidit remains in critical condition, while his wife, Nina is tending to their store. They three kids and both work full-time. He runs the store while she works at Safeway.

Police are asking anyone with information to step forward.

“There’s been a hostile environment for immigrants,” Cynthia Choi of Chinese for Affirmative Action told NBC News. “This isn’t anything new for Asian American communities and in fact defines our experience to be scapegoated to be blamed whether it’s a public health crisis or economic crisis.”

The Quidit family is not sure if they were targeted because they are Asian. But they told NBC News that they are grateful for the support from the community.
