A 42-year-old Alhambra man remained behind bars Saturday in connection with the deadly shooting of a man and woman inside an apartment in Alhambra.

Police received a call of shots fired at an apartment complex in the 400 block of North Second Street at 7:15 p.m. Friday and upon arrival they located two victims suffering from gunshot wounds inside an apartment, according to Cmdr. Gabriel Ponce of the Alhambra Police Department.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene, Ponce said. Their names were withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Another officer responding to the call was stopped by a man later identified as Sam Nhat Do in the area of Main and Second streets. Do told the officer he had just shot two people inside an apartment in the 400 block of North Second Street, Ponce said.

Do was arrested on suspicion of murder and was being held on $2 million bail. A firearm was recovered at the scene, Ponce said.

A motive for the shooting was under investigation and efforts were underway to determine the relationship between the suspect and victims.

“There are no (other) outstanding suspects and the community is not in danger,” Ponce said.
