Police today identified a man and woman who died in an apparent murder-suicide Saturday morning, and whose 17-month-old daughter was later found unharmed in a nearby vehicle. Police believe Trung Quoc Nguyen, 32, fatally shot 39-year-old Emanuel Tran Phoung Nguyen and then fatally shot himself. Officers responded to a shopping center in the 1000 block of East Capitol Expressway at about 9:30 a.m. after receiving reports of a shooting, police spokesman Officer Jose Garcia said.
Both Nguyens each had at least one gunshot wound and were pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators have since determined that the suspect and victim, both San Jose residents, had a previous dating relationship, Garcia said. A female child found unharmed inside the vehicle was the couple’s daughter, police said. The child was taken into protective custody by Santa Clara County Child Protective Services, police said.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call the Police Department’s homicide unit at (408) 277-5283 or the anonymous tip line at (408) 947-STOP (7867).
