Sacramento police have arrested a man for allegedly shooting to death two people on a south Sacramento street Sunday in an apparent robbery and home invasion at a suspected illegal marijuana grow house.

The men killed in the 4 a.m. Sunday shooting have not been identified. The suspect was identified by police as Sean Huang, 46, of Sacramento.

He was booked into Sacramento County jail Sunday night on two counts of suspicion of murder. Homicide investigators said they believe he acted alone.

Huang was arrested at a hospital where he had gone for treatment of an injury that police believe was suffered at the crime scene. Huang had been identified early on as a person of interest in the events that unfolded in the 5900 block of 68th Street.

When officers arrived, they found the two bodies lying in the road.

A police spokeswoman said that violent crimes associated with marijuana growing operations have been on the rise.
