LAS VEGAS, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Four suspects in the shooting deaths of four people at a Los Angeles boarding house were in custody Tuesday in Las Vegas, police said.

Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck said his officers, with assistance from the FBI and Las Vegas and Henderson, Nev., police, arrested the four suspects without incident at the Silverton Hotel and Casino, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Ka Pasasouk, 31, of Los Angeles, Howard Alcantara, 30, of Glendale, Calif., Donna Rabulan, 30, of Los Angeles and Christina Neal, 33, of Los Angeles were being held in the Clark County jail pending extradition back to California, the newspaper said. Pasasouk is suspected of murder and the other three of aiding a felon. Alcantara also faces a robbery charge.

While authorities were not revealing the motive for the Sunday slayings in Los Angeles' Northridge neighborhood or information about the victims -- two men and two women -- sources familiar with the investigation told the Times a dispute over personal property of some sort appeared to be at its core.
