Thins don’t seem too rosy at the motel right now. Last November a man was shot at 11:15a.m. in the lobby of the motel and, according to the OC Register:
Police have been called to the Akua Motor Inn several times in the past for reports of thefts, narcotics violations and domestic disturbances, Wyatt said. In June, 33-year-old Daniel Richardson of Irvine was shot to death at the motel.
