Savanna Sok, 30, wanted in connection with the Oct. 10 murder of two Long Beach residents, and the attempt murder of two others, was located and arrested Wednesday at 6:05 p.m. by Long Beach Police officers.
 
Suspect Sok, whose photo was released on Oct. 31 asking for the public's help, was observed in a vehicle near Elm Avenue and 61st Street.  A felony traffic stop on the vehicle, occupied by two males and one female, was conducted.  Sok fled from the vehicle and after a short foot pursuit, was taken into custody.  A firearm located in Sok’s waistband was recovered.    

Sok was booked on the 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, 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 $1,000,000 bail. 

A gun recovered during the 10/26/17 search warrant served 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.

Prior story from Oct. 31

Suspect wanted in connection with 10/10/17 murders of two male adults at a liquor store at Anaheim Street & Walnut Avenue, and the LBPD is asking for the public’s help in locating 30-year-old Savanna Sok from Long Beach. Sok was identified as a 5’9” tall, 160 lbs., with brown eyes and black hair Cambodian male.

LBPD also seeks help identifying/locating Sok’s girlfriend (pictured), who is a person of interest. We believe the couple may have fled to the San Bernardino/Redlands area. Sok should be considered possibly armed/dangerous, and no attempt should be made to detain him.

Anyone who has information regarding their whereabouts, or the female’s identity, is urged to contact Homicide Detectives Shea Robertson and Oscar Valenzuela at (562) 570-7244. Anonymous tips may be submitted through “LA Crime Stoppers” by calling 1-800-222-T IPS (8477), downloading the “P3 Tips” app to your smart phone (available at the Apple App store and Google Play), or visiting www.lacrimestoppers.org.
