A 30-year-old man wanted in connection with the Oct. 10 murder of two Long Beach residents and the attempted murder of two others was located and arrested at approximately 6:05pm on Wednesday, Nov. 29, according to the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD). Two other suspects– a male and a female– were arrested on-site, as well.
Murder suspect Savanna Sok’s photo was released on Oct. 31 in an attempt to seek the public’s help in finding him. Police officers located Sok in a vehicle near Elm Avenue and 61st Street that Nov. 29 evening. A felony traffic stop on the vehicle, occupied by two males and one female, was conducted. Sok fled from the vehicle and was taken into custody after a short foot pursuit. A firearm located in Sok’s waistband was recovered.
Sok was booked on an outstanding murder and attempt-murder warrant and is being held at the Long Beach City Jail without bail.
The female in the vehicle– whose photo was also released as a person of interest last month– was earlier identified as 23-year-old Kelly Reyes of Long Beach. She was booked on an outstanding accessory to murder warrant and is being held at the Long Beach City Jail on $1,040,000 bail.
The second male subject in the vehicle was identified as 21-year-old Leonardo Lim of La Puente. He was booked for accessory to murder and is being held at the Long Beach City Jail on $1-million bail.
A gun recovered during the Oct. 26 search warrant at a residence in the 5900 block of Walnut Avenue was determined to be the firearm used in the murder and attempted murder.
A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
