Police identify suspect

FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) — A man arrested in the stabbing death of a retired administrator at the California State University, Fullerton campus was a co-worker, police said Thursday.

Chuyen Vo, 51, was arrested Wednesday night at his home in Huntington Beach, officials announced at a news conference near the killing scene in a campus parking lot.

Lt. Jon Radus, however, declined to elaborate on Vo’s work relationship with the victim and whether it was current or in the past.

Police also didn’t reveal a motive for the killing.

The victim, Steven Shek Keung Chan, 57, worked as the director of budget and finance and student services for university extended education but retired in 2017. He returned to the campus in January to work as a consultant.

Authorities have said Chan was found stabbed numerous times inside his silver Infiniti on Monday.

A black-clad man was seen running away and later leaving a nearby parking lot in a black sedan.

The school had no reports of any problems between Chan and Vo, university spokeswoman Ellen Treanor said.

Vo, whom neighbors said they knew as Chris, lived in an Orange County neighborhood lined with two-story homes near a busy freeway with his wife, mother-in-law and children, neighbor Michael Wood said.
