Woman dies after being dragged, shot; 2 arrested

WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say two suspects have been arrested after a 38-year-old woman was dragged alongside a vehicle for several blocks and then shot during an apparent robbery attempt at a Southern California park.

Westminster police spokesman Van Woodson says Tuyet Thi Huynh of Garden Grove was at an Orange County park Sunday when she was seen talking to a man and a woman who were sitting in a vehicle.

Woodson says the passenger of the car grabbed Huynh's purse as the driver sped away, dragging Huynh for several blocks. He says one of the suspects then shot Huynh, who fell to the ground. She died later at a hospital.

Woodson says 18-year-old Christopher Yu of Fountain Valley and 19-year-old Lynn Quach of Garden Grove were arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.
