Police have blocked off the roads to a Southern California apartment complex where two people were stabbed during a man’s deadly rampage in two cities killed four people.

Police cars are parked Thursday outside the two-story complex known as Casa de Portola in the city of Garden Grove, and yellow police tape blocks surrounding residential streets.

The attacks at multiple locations Wednesday afternoon in Garden Grove and in neighboring Santa Ana left four people dead and two wounded.

Police arrested the suspect at a convenience store about a 10-minute drive away from the complex down a thoroughfare lined with auto shops, fast food restaurants and motels that cuts through central Orange County, south of Los Angeles.

The suspect has not been identified.


11:40 p.m.

Authorities say a man who was “full of anger” stabbed, slashed and robbed his way across two Southern California cities in a bloody rampage that killed four people and wounded two others who were apparently targeted at random.

Police say the 33-year-old man from the city of Garden Grove robbed more than half a dozen businesses and killed two men at his own apartment complex during the two-hour wave of violence Wednesday.

Police say he was arrested as he walked out of a convenience store in neighboring Santa Ana, dropping a knife and a gun he had taken from a security guard he had just killed. The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.
