Two men have been arrested by sheriff’s detectives on suspicion of murder in a home invasion robbery that resulted in the deaths of a father and his sons last week in southern Sacramento County.
Elijah Johnson, 21, and Daniel Nguyen, 24, were booked into Sacramento County jail on homicide charges in the killing of Thanh Le, 56, and his sons Dong Le, 32, and Tien Le, 21. Amanda Tucker, 18, and a 17-year-old girl were arrested on suspicion of robbery in connection with the case.
The three men were killed around 6:15 a.m. Thursday morning in their home in the 8700 block of Ardith Drive, a neighborhood of single-family homes near Elk Grove Florin Road.
Sacramento County sheriff’s detectives believe the men were shot during a home invasion robbery.
The four were taken into custody at different locations. Johnson was detained at a motel in the 2600 block of El Centro Road on Sunday, taken to the Sheriff’s Department for interviewing and then arrested. Nguyen was arrested at an apartment complex in the 2700 block of Castle Court.
Robbery suspect Tucker was arrested at a home in the 4900 block of Little Oak Lane. The teen, who was booked into juvenile hall, was arrested at a home on Del Paso Boulevard.
Johnson is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. Nguyen will be arraigned the next day at the same time.
