Authorities in California say a 23-year-old woman has been indicted on federal charges for her role in the shooting deaths of two Asian men in Los Angeles County, and that she has been accused of firing the fatal shots in a shooting spree that left two others injured.
Korean suspect, who was born in Japan, is expected to be arraigned in federal court Friday.
The shooting spree, which ended in a fatal police shootout with the suspects, began Sunday night when the suspect walked into the Huntington Beach Police Department in search of a female officer, according to Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Officer Alicia Hernandez.
The suspect allegedly told the officer he had a gun and asked to see her identification, Hernandez said.
The officer then asked the suspect if she knew the victim and she replied “yes,” Hernandez said in a statement.
The victim was taken to the hospital, where she later died, Hernandez added.
The suspect is not being charged in the victims death.
Hernandez said the suspect fired shots from an undisclosed location in the parking lot of the Huntington Police Department parking lot, and later in the afternoon the suspects car was found abandoned on a cul-de-sac on the side of the road, a short distance from the officers.
Investigators have not yet released the identities of the victims.
One of the officers was killed while the other was wounded.
The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating the shooting spree and have not released a motive.
