VACAVILLE, Calif. — An 18-year-old gunman fatally shot two men and wounded a woman at a Vacaville apartment early Tuesday before raiding the city's nearby police station, where he was arrested, authorities said.
The suspect, identified as Richard Ruben Calkins, came to the Merchant Street station armed but lost his weapon while smashing a glass door and a window in the lobby, police said. An officer fired a Taser at the Vacaville resident before he was subdued.
