Male, 30, driver and office clerk at the Beijing Office of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps. From: Beijing.
On June 5, 1989, at around 6:40 a.m., Peng left his residence at Dongda Bridge in Chaoyang District to buy breakfast. At the western end of a side street off the bridge, Peng encountered martial law troops firing indiscriminately. He was shot twice, one bullet hitting his ankle, the other entering the right side of his back and exiting from the left side of his chest. Those at the scene took him to the Chaoyang Hospital on a flatbed cart, but efforts to save his life failed. Peng’s ashes are kept at the Cinerary Management Office of the Pinggu Crematorium.
Six months after Peng’s death, his wife left his family home with their three-year old child. Peng’s father later died, devastated by the death of this son. Only two members of the original family of six are left—Peng’s mother and little sister, who have been struggling to get by.
Peng’s mother, Liu Shuqin (刘淑琴), is a member of the Tiananmen Mothers.
