Murder charge laid in 2016 homicide

Calgary, Alberta – The Calgary Police Service has charged a man believed to be responsible for the death of a man dating back nearly three years.

Just after midnight, in the early morning of Friday, Aug. 12, 2016, emergency crews were called to the 200 block of Panamount Way N.W., for reports of a shooting. Louie Angelo MOJICA was found seriously injured in the front seat of a white Dodge Charger. A short time later, he was declared deceased on scene.

Police asked for public assistance in relation to the homicide a year later in August 2017 by releasing a surveillance photo.

Following an extensive investigation, police have charged 27-year-old Jimmy TRUONG, of Calgary, with one count of first-degree murder.

TRUONG also faces first-degree murder charges in relation to the September 2016 deaths of Cuc LUNG, 34, and Quang TRAN, 38, in Calgary, as well as the October 2016 homicide of Phu PHAN, 30, in Edmonton.

All four homicides are believed to be targeted attacks carried out by an organized crime group. The investigations are ongoing and police believe there are additional people involved in the murders.

Anyone with information about these homicides is asked to contact police by calling the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or the Homicide Unit Tip Line at 403-428-8877. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers using either of the following methods:

Organized crime member charged with first degree murder

One man has been charged in relation to a joint homicide investigation by the Calgary Police Service, Edmonton Police Service and the RCMP.

At approximately 8 p.m., on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2016, Cuc LUNG, 34, and Quang TRAN, 38, returned to their residence on Redstone Manor N.E., when they were shot while sitting in their vehicle. LUNG’s five-year-old son was also in the car at the time of the shooting, however, he was uninjured.

TRAN died at the scene and LUNG was transported to hospital where she died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

At approximately 8 a.m., on Friday, Oct. 7, 2016, emergency crews responded to reports of a shooting in the area of 171 Avenue and 126 Street, in the Edmonton community of Rapperswill, where Phu PHAN, 30, was found deceased in the driveway of his residence. He died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

It is believed the two shooting incidents were targeted attacks carried out by an organized crime group.

Jimmy TRUONG, 26, of Calgary, was arrested in Calgary yesterday, Thursday, April 19, 2018. He is charged with three counts of first degree murder.

In September 2017, the public was asked for assistance to identify TRUONG as well as two other men who may have had information about these homicides. Those two men have since been identified and remain of interest to investigators.

Investigators would like to thank the public for their assistance.
