The 32-year-old ex-boyfriend of an Arlington woman was arrested in her killing Wednesday, police said.

Viet Nguyen Quoc was taken into custody without incident in Dallas, police said in a news release.

Cam-Tu Tran, 30, died of a gunshot wound early Monday. Police found her about 1:30 a.m. in a parked car outside a home in the 3400 block of Mayflower Court, off East Mayfield Road.

Quoc also faces an aggravated assault charge in the shooting of a man who had been in the car with Tran.

The victim was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. On Tuesday, he told police that Quoc shot him and Tran as they sat in a Mercury Sable sedan, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

The man couldn’t give a full interview to police since he had been shot near his mouth. He identified Quoc as the shooter by selecting his picture, the affidavit said.

Tran’s family told police that she and Quoc had been dating and recently broke up.

Since then, the affidavit said, Tran had been receiving phone calls from various numbers, though the caller never said anything.

Her car had also been keyed recently and her tires cut, her family told police. Tran suspected Quoc of making the phone calls and damaging her car.

Quoc was booked into the Arlington Jail on Wednesday night. His bail was set at $250,000.
