San Francisco detectives arrested a man wanted in the gruesome slaying of five people and detained the man’s brother on drug charges, according to media reports on Monday.
Binh Thai Luc, 35, was arrested on five counts of homicide that took place in a quiet home that stunned neighbors, reported the San Francisco Chronicle.
Police Chief Greg Suhr said that the victims suffered from blunt trauma but added that “an edged weapon” was also involved in the killings, the newspaper reported.
However, he added, “We don’t know the circumstances until we get that from the medical examiner,” according to the local KGO-7 television station. The victims have also not been identified.
“No one really knows what happened in there except the people that were in there,” neighbor Mike Byrnes told the station.
Suhr added that there was also a likely relationship between Luc and the victims, noting that he has a criminal record and could possibly have “prior gang ties,” according to the Chronicle.
