SAN JOSE (CBS / AP) — Authorities have released the identities of two people who died in an apparent murder-suicide at a busy San Jose strip mall.
San Jose police say 32-year-old Trung Quoc Nguyen shot 39-year-old Emanuel Tran Phoung Nguyen in the head at 9:30 a.m. Saturday before shooting himself.
Police say the motive is still being investigated, but they have said the two were a former couple.
They were pronounced dead at the scene at Gould Center. The woman’s 17-month-old daughter was found strapped in a car seat in a vehicle just a few feet away.
The San Jose Mercury News reports the toddler was not hurt and was placed under the custody of Santa Clara County Child Protective Services.
