A Vacaville man was shot to death in the parking lot of an apartment complex Saturday night, police said today. Police were called to the apartment complex at 1501 Alamo Drive at 9:17 p.m., when numerous callers reported hearing gunshots.
The victim, later identified as Quinten Nears, 20, of Vacaville, was found in the parking lot with multiple gun shot wounds to his upper body. Police and fire personnel began CPR and attempted to revive Nears, but he was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.
A suspect, described as a white or Hispanic male in his early 20s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with a medium build, was seen fleeing the scene on foot. A search of the area involving police dogs and helicopters failed to locate him. Detectives are investigating whether the shooting was gang related. This is the second homicide in Vacaville this year.
