A man suspected of two killings after someone reported seeing a livestream on social media that showed him with a gun and two women lying motionless on the floor of an apartment has been arrested.
Officers went to an apartment building in California for formerly homeless veterans and low-income families early Saturday after getting a call from a woman about the livestream.
A spokesman for the Vacaville Police Department said: “The video showed the man carrying a handgun and two women lying on the floor – not moving.”
Officers found the man had barricaded himself in the apartment, and a SWAT team and negotiators were called in.
After negotiations failed, the building was evacuated and officers got inside the apartment with “distraction devices and chemical agents”.
There was a brief struggle and a Taser was used before police took the man into custody.
“Officers additionally found two women deceased inside of the apartment,” the department said in a post on Facebook.
Raymond Michael Weber, 29, of Sacramento, is being held without bail on two counts of first-degree murder.
