BALDWIN PARK, Calif. - State troopers in Idaho arrested a 34-year-old man who was wanted in the shooting of a couple in Baldwin Park, officials announced.

Baldwin Park police had been searching for Paul Mendoza Allen.

He had been identified as the suspect in the shooting of a married couple who were found Tuesday with multiple gunshot wounds in their Baldwin Park home. The couple survived and remain hospitalized.

Idaho state troopers pulled over Allen for a traffic stop Thursday around 11:36 a.m., according to Baldwin Park police.
