VACAVILLE — Vacaville police have named a suspect in a double homicide that occurred this morning.

Richard Ruben Calkins, 18, of Vacaville, is suspected in a shooting that killed two men and wounded a woman, Lt. Randy Weaver said during an 11 a.m. news conference.

The bodies of two men, believed to be in their 20s, were found inside an apartment on William Street, according to Vacaville public information officer Mark Mazzaferro. They had been shot in the head. A woman, also believed to be in her 20s, was shot in the face and is undergoing treatment at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento.

Calkins, who showed up at the Police Department and broke several windows, was injured while being taken into custody and also is hospitalized.

According to police, dispatchers received a report around 1:50 a.m. today of shots being fired on William Street, near downtown Vacaville.

When officers arrived, they found a woman lying in front of the apartment. Inside, they found the bodies of the two men.

Meanwhile, the suspect walked down Merchant Street to the Police Department and entered the lobby. He was still armed, although his gun was no longer working, according to Mazzaferro.

The man threw the gun into a lobby window and broke it, Mazzaferro said. Then he picked up a sign in the lobby and used it to break another window. He walked out of the door, unarmed, and headed down the stairs. When he got to the first landing, officers ordered him to stop. When he did not, officers drew their Tasers and fired.

The injured suspect fell and hit his head. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police confirmed that they do not believe the incident is gang-related.

    If his weapon was still functioning he probably would be taking a very long "dirt nap."

    This POS should have been thrown through the window and then dropped kicked down the stairs a couple of times.
