Edwin Ramos, 21, is accused of the June 22 shooting deaths of Tony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16, in the city's Excelsior district. In an appearance before Judge Lucy Kelly McCabe, Ramos, who is believed to be an illegal alien who benefited from the city's sanctuary policy, spoke softly and slowly in denying each of the allegations. His attorney says that he is a legal resident.
The California Highway Patrol posted on Facebook that it was called upon to help in the search for an attempted murder and arson suspect in the City of Vacaville. During the search, an officer was involved in a shooting with the subject, who then reportedly stabbed a K-9 with the Fairfield (CA) Police Department.
