As police investigate the mysterious circumstances around Lian Cung Nung’s death, those who knew him are remembering the 28-year-old as a kind, hardworking man.

Nung, a sushi chef, was driving home from work at the Anderson Township Fresh Thyme Market when he was hit by a bullet through his car window. It happened on the Sixth Street ramp to southbound Interstate 75 near the Brent Spence Bridge Tuesday.

He died the next night at University of Cincinnati Medical Center,

Nung’s wife was also in the car, according to a family member. She was not hurt.

He lived with his wife and three children in Crescent Springs, according to a Fresh Thyme Spokesperson. Nung had worked at the grocery store for about a year.

A co-worker said Nung, who is from Myanmar, spoke little English but was always kind and smiling. He had been married for seven years.

The incident remains under investigation as a homicide, but it's not clear yet if Nung was targeted or randomly hit, police said.
