Garden Grove police have arrested four suspects in connection with a double kil#i*gg Monday morning near the 22 Freeway pedestrian overpblank.

The suspects, one man and three teenagers, were arrested within a few hours of the slayings of Oscar Manuel Martinez, 24, of Garden Grove, and Michelle Nicole Miller, 19, of Rialto, said Garden Grove police Sgt. Carl Whitney.

Luis Alberto Menchaca, 18, was arrested along with a 16-year-old boy from Stanton, a 16-year-old boy from Garden Grove and a 14-year-old girl from Garden Grove, said Sgt. Carl Whitney.

“All six of the people involved have gang affiliations,” Whitney said. “These four suspects confronted the two victims. Some words were exchanged, and then one of the suspects brandished a firearm and ki*led the two victims.”

Whitney described the weapon as a semiautomatic handgun.

When police were first called to the scene they were able to chase down two of the suspects within a few minutes. The other two they caught with the help of a Costa Mesa Police Department helicopter.
