Double Homicide in Alhambra; Suspect Identified, Arrested

 Two people were shot and killed and a suspect is in custody in what Alhambra Police are calling a double homicide.

APD received a call of shots fired in the 400 block of North Second Street in Alhambra last night around 7:15 p.m. When officers arrived at the scene they found two apparent victims of gunshot wounds—a man and a woman, both Asian— inside an apartment, according to a press release from APD.

One of the victims was dead but officers tried to resuscitate the second victim with CPR but that person also succumbed. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

A firearm was recovered at the scene and that was believed to be the weapon used in the shootings.

A short time later, another responding officer encountered  a male subject near the corner of Main Street and Second Street. According to APD, that person told the officer that he had just shot two subjects inside the residence on North Second Street. The subject has been identified as Sam Nhat Do, 42, of Alhambra who apparently lives in the area of the shooting.

 Alhambra police arrested Do and booked him into Alhambra Police Department jail.

 The motive of the shootings is being investigated by Alhambra Police Department  and investigators are still trying to determine the relationship between the subject and the victims, whose identities have not been released pending notification of next of kin.

 Do’s bail has been set at $2 million. He is due to be arraigned Tuesday morning in Alhambra City Courthouse.
