I was just driving home from work a few minutes ago and KCBS radio said there was a double killing in Fairfield today. This is from memory so I'm not sure if everything is accurate. Two men, a 24-year old from Fairfield and an 18-year old from E. Palo Alto were found in the street in front of the Parkway Gardens Condominiums, both dead. Police responded to calls about gunshots. Parkway Gardens is on El Toro Court. (I think that's over near Air Base Parkway and Dover.) A suspect with dreadlocks was seen running away carrying a handgun.

There was also a death at the shooting range in Vacaville. Last I heard they don't know whether it was an accident or suicide.

Thanks for the link, Solution. I looked on Channel 40's website but all they had was a couple of sentences about this. No details.

A .357 to the head? What a mess! Had to be suicide, don't you think?

I would have to say so. If you think about it, that could be a good place to kill someone. So many gunshots so nobody notices. They should be able to tell by trajectory. Does anyone know if there are cameras on the lanes?

I've never fired there. Is it an indoor range? I used to shoot at United Sportsman's on top of Willow Pass on Hwy. 4. They have ranges for everything, pistols, rifles, skeet, traps, silhouettes. Somebody told me they added sporting clays which I think would be a riot to do. Their safety rules are very strict and I'm fine with that. There's a clubhouse too where you can grab a sandwich and a cold one. I like the crowd there as well. All good dudes.

I'd be surprised if they didn't have cameras.

Yes this is an indoor range. I haven't been in a very long time. I might have to check that one out. Its hard to find places to shoot the ole shotgun. Hey I'd rather have strict rules to keep the dummy's from putting one in my back. Thanks for the info

It's been a long time since I last shot there. Traps used to be fairly cheap and I was hitting pretty good back then. Never got a perfect score but I did shoot 24/25 one night. We used to go after work. 5 or 6 of us guys would go up there and shoot a few boxes of shells, then head to the clubhouse for a few brews. It was always a great time.

I didn't see anything new this morning about these killings. Hopefully, they'll be able to catch the murderer. Maybe somebody got a license plate number or a good description. It sounds like there were witnesses. Fairfield and Vacaville have turned into war zones.

The Vacaville is an indoor range. Last time I was there was to compete in a turkey shoot. I won first place in the women's division!

It's in the morning's Reporter. Roboblogger should pick that up.

I just posted it. It has Fairfield in the headline, so it won't be picked up by roboblogger.

Sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for Emjoe's always witty comments on the double homicide in Fayfiell. Think they were under the influence of Colt-45?

What a shame, I am sure they were fine young lads, door to door "bible" salesmen no doubt. I bet the dude seen running off with the with the dreadlocks stoled all of their bibles.

No doubt, or they were turning their lives around. I had to go into that area a few days ago and it is a little spooky when you get into those dead end alleys.

"Dead end" alleys? Nice pun, Bob. That cracked me up.
