    CA - Ying Wu & Ming Qu, 23yo USC students, killed near campus, 11 April 2012


    A gunman opened fire on a BMW near the USC campus Wednesday, killing two international students from China in a bungled robbery attempt, police said.

    One of the victims, a man in his 20s, attempted to run for help after being shot but never made it. He was found collapsed on a porch, police said. The other victim, a woman in her 20s, was found slumped over in the BMW parked in the 2700 block of South Raymond Avenue, a few blocks from USC.

    Police said both were graduate students from China studying electrical engineering, and Los Angeles authorities were working with school officials and the Chinese consulate to notify their families.

    Bryan Barnes, 21, pleaded guilty yesterday to murder and was sentenced to two consecutive life terms without parole.

    His co-defendant is awaiting trial, and prosecutors may seek the death penalty.

    From November 2014:


    One of two men found guilty of the murders of two USC graduate students from China was sentenced Monday to life in prison without the possibility of parole at a hearing where the judge described the case as one of the saddest he had presided over.

    Javier Bolden, 22, was found guilty last month in the deaths of Ming Qu and Ying Wu, who were gunned down while parked outside a home near USC.
