A 26-year-old Calgary man has been arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder.

Jimmy Truong was arrested on April 19 following a joint investigation made by the Calgary Police Service, the Edmonton Police Service, and the RCMP.

Truong is charged with first-degree murder in relation to the deaths of Cuc Lung, Quang Tran, and Phu Phan, all three were been shot to death in 2016.

Lung and Tran were shot in September 2016 as they returned to their Edmonton home. Tran had died at the scene, though Lung died after being transported to the hospital. Her five-year-old son was also in the vehicle at the time, though he was not injured.

Phan was found dead in his driveway just over two weeks later, also a result of gunshot wounds.

Police believe that the two shootings were targeted, and the work of an organized crime group.

A year after the first incident, in September 2017, police asked the public to identify Truong and two other men who could have information about the shootings.

Truong has since been arrested, but the two other men remain of interest to the police.

Anyone who may have additional information on the incidences is asked to contact the Edmonton Police Department’s non-emergency number at 780-423-4567, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477 or online through their website.
