A report of shots fired at a Vacaville home led to the arrest of a man Thursday night after responding officers found the body of a woman lying on the floor of the home’s garage, police said. Sidney Wilson, 33, was arrested in connection with the shooting, which was reported at about 10:40 p.m. at a home in the 200 block of Cambridge Drive. Initial reports indicate that the shooting was a domestic violence incident, police said. Officers responding to the report surrounded the home and attempted to contact a man inside the residence.
While officers attempted to establish communication with the man, a 911 dispatcher communicating with a 17-year-old girl inside the home was able to direct her and three other children to the home’s rear, where a patrol officer evacuated them to a safe location, police said. Officers were eventually able to successfully contact Wilson, the man inside the home, and took him into custody. The woman was found on the floor of the home’s attached garage, where paramedics pronounced her dead. Wilson was booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of homicide, police said.
The district attorney’s office had not yet reviewed the case as of this morning. The woman’s identity is being withheld by police until her family has been notified of her death. The children who had been inside the home were taken into protective custody at the scene and were later released to family members, police said.
