Pair charged with San Mateo robbery murder
September 10, 2013, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Prosecutors yesterday charged two men with murder and robbery for their alleged role in a botched San Mateo home invasion last week that left a third accomplice dead when the occupant opened fire.

Bunn Vo, 22, of San Jose, and Edwin Lee, 22, of Daly City, were each charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, robbery, kidnapping to commit robbery and conspiracy. Neither entered a plea.

Third suspect, Bryant Ma, 23, of San Jose, was killed in the shootout. Lee was also injured but booked into San Mateo County Jail with Vo after being discharged from the San Jose hospital where the trio headed after the shootout.

The incident happened around 11:30 p.m. Sept. 4 in the 1500 block of Lodi Avenue, near South Norfolk Street east of Highway 101. Police say the three suspects entered the home where they confronted four others and gunfire erupted. Two people were shot — Ma and the 24-year-old resident who shot him — and the suspects fled in a dark SUV. At Regional Medical Center of San Jose, May was dead on arrival and Lee was treated for a non-life threatening shot. Hospital personnel alerted police who connected them to the San Mateo shooting. A dark blue SUV was located in the hospital parking lot.

Authorities have said the home invasion was not random but haven’t publicly divulged a possible motive.

California law allows Vo and Lee to be charged with Ma’s murder because they were allegedly participating in a felonious crime that led to his death.

Vo and Lee remain in custody without bail.
