Fil-Am lawyer accused of attempted murder in California apprehended in Idaho
New developments in the case of a Fil-Am lawyer accused in the attempted murder of a Southern California elderly couple, who are also Filipino.
Paul Mendoza Allen was arrested in Jerome, Idaho, after being named a suspect in the shooting of a Baldwin Park Filipino couple. The victims are reportedly in their 70’s and 80’s.
Allen allegedly shot the husband and wife multiple times on Tuesday in their gated community home.
After local police entered his vehicle license plates into the National Crime Information center, Idaho state police located him along with his wife on Wednesday, and are now awaiting extradition.
The couple remains in the hospital.
Reports say that they were Allen’s clients at one time, and money may have been a motivation.
