Police have arrested two men believed to have been involved in the shooting of two Chinese students from the University of California. 20 year old Bryan Barnes, who was arrested at his house close to the school’s campus and Javier Bolden are being held on suspicion of murder. The pair are accused of shooting two Chinese students on the 11th of April.
Ying Wu and Ming Qu were shot dead whilst they sat in a car. Police now believe the suspects were committing a street robery and ended up killing the two students.
Police managed to find forensic evidence at the crime scene that links both Barnes and Bolden to the killings. They have also linked the suspects to another two attempted homicides. The parents of the victims are now suing the university, stating the FAQ section on the online application isn’t truthful about the safety of the surrounding area.
Part of the lawsuit states; “The `urban’ representation misled Chinese students, including Ming Qu, into believing the area is safe since in China, the more urban the area, the safer the area.” University officials say the lawsuit has no foundation, but they are “deeply saddened” by the deaths of Wu and Qu.
