A man and a woman shot to death inside an Alhambra apartment were officially Anaheim residents, authorities said Monday.
Chong Do was 46 and Camha Nguyen Do was 38, coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz said.
Sam Nhat Do, 42, of Alhambra remained behind bars for the shooting, police said.
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.
Another officer responding to the call stopped 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.
