Falls Church police have released the identities of two men killed in a suspected murder-suicide.
At about 10 p.m. Saturday on the 6700 block of Wilson Blvd. in the Eden Center, police said, Tai "Peter" Phan, 49, was shot. Though Phan fled on foot, the shooter chased him and shot him again. Paramedics declared him dead on the scene.
An hour later, witnesses reported an injured man in a car in the Eden Center's parking lot, and police found The Vu, 39, dead in the car with an allegedly self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Police said Phan and Vu were shot by the same caliber weapon and are investigating whether they were shot with the same gun. Vu matches witness descriptions of the shooter, police said, and the two men knew each other. Police said they have not yet determined a motive in the shootings, but witnesses or anyone with information about the incident should call Falls Church police at 703-248-5053.
