Homicide on June 14, 2002l arrest on March 11, 2008.
An arrest gas been made in the cold case homicide of Don Dak Su, a business owner of Han Kuk Billiards.
On June 14, 2002, Don Suk Su and two other male victims were shot by unknown suspects during a drive-by shooting, around 11 p.m., outside the billiards. Su later died at the hospital.
Members of the SDPD Homicide Unit, the Violent Crimes Task Force/Gang Group, the FBI, the SDPD Street Gang Unit, and the District Attorney’s Gang Prosecution Unit conducted an extensive investigation over the last several years, according to Lt. Terry McManus, and the teams identified 26-year-old Down Yang as a suspect in Su’s murder.
On March 11, at 11:45 a.m., detectives charged Yang with one count of murder.
Finding Yang was easy; he is currently in prison for an unrelated conviction.
The investigation is still on-going, as there were more than one gang members involved in the shooting. Apparently, Su was not the intended target and was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
