The 33-year-old man from the city of Garden Grove was “full of anger” when he carried out violent attacks and robberies at businesses and killed two men at his own apartment complex during the two-hour wave of violence Wednesday, police said.
He was arrested as he walked out of a convenience store in the neighboring city Santa Ana, dropping a knife and a gun he had taken from a security guard he had just killed. Authorities planned to release his name Thursday afternoon.
The suspect’s motive appears to be robbery, anger and hate, Garden Grove Police Lt. Carl Whitney said at a press conference. Police arrested the unnamed suspect at a 7-Eleven store in Santa Ana, where he disarmed and killed a security guard. Authorities located the suspect by tracking his silver Mercedes to the store’s parking lot.
“We know this guy was full of anger and he harmed a lot of people tonight,” Whitney said.
Police first responded to a burglary report at an apartment and found no one injured, Whitney said. The suspect also robbed a bakery, check-cashing business, and an insurance business, Whitney said, where he allegedly stabbed a woman several times in the back.
After receiving another call from the same apartment complex, Whitney said police found two male stabbing victims. One died on a balcony and the other died at a hospital, he said.
