NORTHRIDGE (CBSLA.com) — Four arrests have been made in the shooting deaths of four people who were found dead in the front yard of a Northridge home over the weekend, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck announced Tuesday.
Two men and two women were arrested overnight at the Silverton Hotel in Las Vegas,who were listed as:
— 31-year-old Ka Pasasouk, of Los Angeles, on suspicion of murder;
— 30-year-old Howard Alcantara, of Glendale, on suspicion of robbery and aiding a felon;
— 30-year-old Donna Rabulan, of L.A., on suspicion of aiding a felon; and
— 31-year-old Christina Neal, of L.A., on suspicion of aiding a felon
“There are many, many steps left in this investigation,” Beck said.
The four victims, two men and two women between the ages of 20 and 50, were found face-down outside a home in the 17000 block of Devonshire Street early Sunday morning, Los Angeles police said.
One of the female victims was found in a kneeling position and the victims were killed quickly, according to a source who asked not to be identified.
The two-story building where they were shot was being used as an unlicensed boarding house, where unrelated people rent individual rooms, according to police.
Building inspectors red-tagged the building Tuesday afternoon. All the 17 tenants were told they would have to move out of the condemned house.
A makeshift memorial was left outside the building for Amanda Ghossein, who, according to a card, would have turned 25 years old Tuesday.
One of the victims’ relatives said she’s still in shock.
Rolina Calabia said she can’t believe her brother was one of the murder victims.
“Everyday we wake up, it’s hard…he’s gone, he’s not going to come back here,” Calabia said.
Robert Calabia lived with his sister and mother in Eagle Rock. He was a registered nurse and had his own business.
Calabia said her brother was hanging out with the wrong crowd.
She and her mother said they were “very happy” at hearing several suspects had been arrested.
