Raymond Michael Weber, a 29-year-old Sacramento, California man, has been arrested after brandishing a gun near the bodies of two dead women during a livestream.
Weber is the lead suspect in the murder of the two unidentified females and was cuffed after a standoff at an apartment in Vacaville.
Prior to his arrest, officers performed a welfare check at the Rocky Hill Veterans Apartments just after 12:40 a.m.
A woman told police she saw a man, possibly armed, inside an apartment going live on social media.
It’s reported that the video apparently showed the suspect wielding a handgun with the two women lying on the floor, motionless.
With what was shown on the livestream and given in a witness report, Weber was wanted for arrest on suspicion of two counts of murder.
He was also wanted on a warrant citing various felonies including domestic battery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Before being arrested, Weber barricaded himself inside the apartment until SWAT and Critical Incident Negotiation teams were deployed — but to no avail.
After the other apartments were evacuated, flash bangs and chemical agents were deployed into the unit, followed by forced entry by officers.
Following a brief struggle, Weber was shot with a taser and cuffed by 8:32 a.m. The investigation is ongoing.
