Dorothy Hirsch, wife of alleged duck sauce killer, arrested on weapons charges


The wife of the crazed customer accused of killing a Chinese food delivery man in Queens over a duck sauce feud was arrested earlier this month for possession of a weapon, the NYPD and sources said.

Dorothy Hirsch, 62, was arrested following an early morning raid on her home in Briarwood on 84th Highway on June 3 – two days after her husband Glenn Hirsch was charged in the shooting death of Zhiwen Yan on April 30, according to the NYPD.

Authorities on a search warrant seized 8 handguns and ammunition from the home of Dorothy Hirsch, the NYPD said. According to police records, the couple lived in separate homes, with Glenn Hirsch residing nearby in Jamaica.

Dorothy Hirsch has been charged with eight counts of criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Glenn Hirsch had been jailed since his June 1 arrest, but was released on Monday on $500,000 bail posted by his brother.

The husband had a dispute with the Great Wall restaurant, where Yan worked, after claiming last year that they had deprived him of duck sauce for his order.

Hours before Yan was shot, police said surveillance footage captured Glenn Hirsch driving around the restaurant in his car before following Yan to his next delivery.

Yan was found dead from a bullet to the chest.
