An 18-year-old man believed to be one of two people responsible for the fatal shooting of a Solano Community College student last September was arrested Thursday night, Fairfield police said. Hassan McCaulie was named as a suspect after the Sept. 14 shooting and Fairfield police and other law enforcement agencies have been searching for him since. McCaulie was found Thursday around 8:20 p.m. in Pinole.
He was a passenger in a car that was stopped by Pinole police in a business parking lot on San Pablo Avenue, police said. He has addresses in Vallejo and Richmond. Ennis Johnson II, 21, was found dead by his parents with a gunshot wound in his head in a bedroom of the family’s home at The Pointe Apartments in the 2500 block of Hilborn Road in Fairfield around 11:15 p.m. on Sept. 14, police said.
Shortly after Johnson was found dead, police arrested 23-year-old Kenneth Darnell Franklin as a suspect in the murder. He is being held in Solano County Jail under no bail. Since the September murder, police have been searching for the second suspect, McCaulie. Police in September said McCaulie owned guns and was considered armed and dangerous.
On Thursday, McCaulie was booked into the Solano County Jail on a no-bail warrant for murder, police said. Police in September said Johnson was specifically targeted and was robbed during the murder. Johnson, a sophomore, was a starting linebacker on the Solano Community College football team and a member of the basketball team, according to Peter Bostic, the college’s public affairs director. He was majoring in technology and electronics and planned to transfer to a university, Bostic said. Johnson graduated from Armijo High School in Fairfield.
