Three Arizona men were booked Monday on suspicion of killing an Irvine man in Garden Grove in what authorities called a marijuana deal gone bad.

Victor Rene Larios, 29, Jacob Alexander Ruiz, 24, and his cousin, Joseph Anthony Ruiz, 27, were booked on suspicion of fatally shooting of 32-year-old Thien Hoang Phan of Irvine.

The shooting occurred about 12:45 p.m. Sunday in the 9600 block of Westminster Avenue, said Garden Grove police Lt. Carl Whitney. A partner of Phan’s who was at the drug deal managed to get away without getting injured and later called police, Whitney said.

Police arrested the three suspects about 1:30 a.m. Monday as they left a hotel in Venice Beach, Whitney said.
