LOS ANGELES, May 18 (Xinhua) -- Two suspects have been arrested in the killings of two Chinese graduate students studying at the University of Southern California (USC), both the Los Angeles mayor and police chief announced Friday.

The arrests were announced at a press conference by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Chief Charlie Beck at LAPD headquarters.

According to LAPD, the first man, suspected of being the killer, was taken into custody about 4 p.m. local time (2300 GMT). The second man, believed to be involved in the killings, was taken into custody in the Antelope Valley a few hours after the first arrest.

The two suspects will be prosecuted next week, LAPD told the press conference.

A spokesman for the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles told Xinhua that the Consulate was pleased to hear the arrests, calling for bringing to justice the killer soon.

Wu Ying and Qu Ming, both 23 and second-year graduate electrical engineering students from China, were shot and killed near the USC campus at around 1 a.m. local time (0800 GMT) on April 11, while sitting in a car on the 2700 block of Raymond Avenue, where the female victim once lived.

Wu was found shot in the front passenger seat of the car. Qu tried to run and call for help, but he collapsed and was found on a nearby porch, police said.
