After an initial investigation, police said they believe the two men were assaulted.
Further investigation identified Dang as one of the shooters, after which police said he was charged for his role.
Upon arrival, police found Dang barricaded inside the home and refused to cooperate with police. At that point, SWAT was called, officials said. Within hours, Dang peacefully surrendered and was taken into custody.
According to reports, no one but Dang was in the apartment at the time.
