A man who allegedly killed two Southern California Gas Co. workers before turning a gun on himself had blamed the victims and other employees at an Anaheim office for his resignation in 2007, police said.

Phong Thuc Tran, 36, of Fountain Valley "believed he was forced to resign," said Sgt. Tim Schmidt of the Anaheim Police Department.

Police suspect Tran shot and killed Hung Duy Dao, 37, March 17 in the parking lot of a Southern California Gas Co. facility in Anaheim. The next day, Tran allegedly killed Charles Santisteban outside his Pomona home. Santisteban was a 20-year company employee.

Tran was found March 19 in his car near the Anaheim Police Department with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. Company officials said Tran had worked with the two slain men.
