SEATTLE (AP) — One of three men convicted in the 1983 massacre of 13 people at a Seattle gambling club has been deported to Hong Kong.

The 57-year-old Wai Chiu “Tony” Ng won parole in December after 28 years in prison and was deported Tuesday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. The agency says the commercial flight landed Wednesday night.

Two other men were convicted of murder and Ng was convicted of robbery and assault for his role in the shooting at the Wah Mee club.

After his parole, Ng was held by the immigration agency until it obtained the required travel documents from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China.
