A 63-year-old man suspected of shooting a man multiple times Thursday killed himself after sheriff’s deputies stopped his car off of state Highway 1, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies answered a call at 9:45 p.m. Thursday about a shooting at 11558 Jackson St. in the Castroville area and found Charles Frederick Williams, 40, suffering from several serious gunshot wounds. Williams was lying on the ground near the intersection of Jackson and Walsh streets, according to deputies.
As deputies began to offer medical aid to him, they saw a suspect, later identified as Frank John Rebagliati, speeding away, deputies said. Rebagliati led deputies on a high-speed chase out of Castroville and south on Highway 1 heading towards Seaside, reaching a speed of more than 110 mph, according to deputies. The suspect exited the highway at the Fremont Street exit, where deputies were able to force his car to a complete stop.
According to deputies, Rebagliati then pulled out a weapon and committed suicide. Both Williams and Rebagliati resided at 11558 Jackson St. in the Castroville, deputies said. Williams’ condition was not immediately available today. The case remains under investigation and the Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information related to the incident to call investigators at (831) 755-3772.
