A 42-year-old Alhambra man remained behind bars for the deadly shooting in an Alhambra apartment of a man and woman, who were identified Sunday by the Orange County coroner’s office.
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.
Coroner officials identified them Sunday as 44-year-old Cuong Nhat Do and 38-year-old Camha Nguyen Do. The relationship of the two victims has not yet been revealed by authorities. They were listed by the coroner as Anaheim residents, but were also linked to the apartment in Alhambra where they died, KTLA reported.
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.
Sam Nhat Do’s relationship to the victims was not immediately disclosed.
Do was arrested on suspicion of murder and being held on $2 million bail. A firearm was recovered at the scene, Ponce said.
A motive for the shooting was under investigation.
“There are no (other) outstanding suspects and the community is not in danger,” Ponce said.
Do is scheduled to appear in Alhambra Superior Court 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
