Murder-suicide in San Jose leaves infant girl orphaned

Two people are dead after an alleged murder-suicide in San Jose over the weekend that left an infant without her parents.

According to San Jose police, officers responded to the 1000 block of East Capitol Expressway on a report of a shooting at about 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. Upon arrival, they located the victim and suspect lying dead from apparent gunshot wounds in the parking lot of a local shopping mall.

Investigators determined that the pair had previously been involved in a dating relationship and were the parents of a 17-month-old girl. The baby was also located in the suspect’s vehicle at the scene. She was unharmed and is currently in the custody of Santa Clara County Child Protective Services.

Officials say the investigation revealed that the suspect, identified as Trung Quoc Nguyen, 32, shot the victim, 39-year-old Emanuel Tan Phoung Nguyen, before turning the gun on himself.

No other injuries were reported and the case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Sgt. Erin Fong or Det. John Barg of the San Jose Police Department’s Homicide Unit at (408) 277-5283.
