YOUNTVILLE, Calif. (AP) - The former guardian of an ex-soldier who killed three employees at a Northern California veterans program says he always wanted to serve his country and never showed any violent tendencies.

Cissy Sherr said Saturday that she raised Albert Wong from the time he was 6 until he was a teenager after his father died and his mother developed health problems.

Sherr said Wong was put into the foster care system when he was a teenager because she and her husband worked full-time. She said he kept in touch with her after he graduated and joined the Army.

She described him as soft-spoken and said he was always a person of integrity and honor.

Sherr says Wong had trouble readjusting after his deployment in Afghanistan and that it "started to catch up with him."
