A $1 million arrest warrant has been obtained for a 37-year-old man suspected of killing a fellow tourist from Romania at an Anaheim budget motor inn and police asked Wednesday evening for the public’s help in tracking down the suspect.

Florin Raducanu is suspected of shooting Aurel Trandafir, 42, Sunday night in a common area of Abby’s Anaheimer Inn at 1201 W. Katella Ave., across from Disneyland, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.

When officers arrived at the inn, they found Trandafir suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Raducanu is wanted by Romanian authorities for robbery, Carrigner said.

The gray 2020 Chrysler Voyager minivan Raducanu used to escape after the shooting has been recovered, Carrigner said.

Raducanu is considered to be armed and dangerous and is known to use numerous fake names, said Carringer.

Anyone who sees him was asked to call 911 or if you know of Raducanu’s whereabouts, call Anaheim police detectives at 714-321-3669.
