Two men were arrested in the killing of a 34-year-old real estate agent and San Francisco resident, who was gunned down in October on a San Jose street after leaving a bar where he celebrated a career achievement, police said Monday.

The suspects, Nathan Nai Fong Saechao, 19, of Oakland and Manh Do Van Tran, 29, of Hayward, were arrested on suspicion of killing Michael Arcega, said Sgt. Enrique Garcia, a San Jose police spokesman.

Saechao was arrested in Oakland on Thursday and Tran was taken into custody on Sunday in San Jose. Both were booked into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of murder.

Arcega was shot Oct. 24 on the 1500 block of Monterey Road in San Jose and died at the scene, police said. A motive for the slaying was not revealed.

Arcega, who grew up in Hawaii, was a real estate agent at Keller Williams in San Carlos. He had just signed his first real estate listing and had gone out to celebrate. He was shot dead just before 2 a.m. after leaving a Monterey Road bar.
