Police have released video and photos of two men being sought in connection with a home-invasion robbery and shooting that left one person dead and another injured in Irvine over the weekend.
The incident was reported about 5:45 a.m. Saturday, when the Irvine Police Department and the Orange County Fire Authority received a call about an injured man in a residential neighborhood.
Officers responding to a home on Bayleaf Lane found the injured man, who told them that another man was hurt elsewhere in the home, Irvine police said in a news release Monday.
Officers then found the second man with multiple gunshots wounds. Both men were taken to a hospital, and the gunshot victim was pronounced dead. Authorities did not elaborate on the other victim’s condition except to say that he had been assaulted and that the injuries were not life-threatening.
Police identified the slain man as 20-year-old Raymond Alcala.
Both victims lived in the home, officials said.
Surveillance video from inside the home revealed that two men with firearms entered the residence. Police said the men intended to commit robbery when the shooting occurred.
“We do think that they were targeting these victims, we just are still investigating the reasons why,” Irvine police Cmdr. Noelle Smiley told KTLA.
Authorities believe the incident was isolated and there is no known danger to the community, but the men involved are still outstanding. Police released surveillance video and and photos of the men involved.
Anyone who has information about the incident can call the Irvine Police Department’s tip line at 949-724-7394.
