BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - The sister of the man who shot and killed 13 people inside the Binghamton, N.Y. immigrant center says her family was surprised and shocked to learn that he was the gunman.

In an interview on NBC’s “Today” show Monday morning, Jiverly Wong’s sister said she had “occasional communications” with him but hadn’t lived in the same house together for 20 years.

The woman, whose name wasn’t given during the interview, said her 41-year-old younger sibling kept his feelings to himself.

She says she could tell he was depressed about losing his job and very frustrated with his English speaking skills.

She says her family was “very sorry for all the victims and their families”
