FAIRFIELD — The second suspect in a shooting that occurred Friday in rural Vallejo is now in custody.
Solano County sheriff’s deputies were notified that Wayne W. Robbins wanted to turn himself in after he learned that investigators had been searching for him for two days since the shooting, the Sheriff’s Office announced Monday in a news release.
Robbins, 52, a transient out of Vallejo, was met in front of the Vallejo Police Department and was taken into custody. He was booked on suspicion of attempted murder, conspiracy, being a felon in possession of a firearm and being an ex-felon in possession of ammunition, according to the release.
Bail was set at $750,000 for the attempted murder allegation and another combined $20,000 for the alleged weapons offenses. He was held without bail on the conspiracy allegation.
The shooting was reported just before 2 p.m. Friday in the area of Sacramento Street and Highway 37.
Deputies said they spoke to the victim, who said his two assailants fled on a small aluminum boat after shooting him. A Coast Guard boat stopped such a boat on San Pablo Bay and the lone occupant, John Sauerzopf, 58, of American Canyon, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and conspiracy, the Sheriff’s Office reported. He was held without bail on the attempted murder allegation. Bail was set at $15,000 for the conspiracy allegation.
An arrest warrant was soon issued for Robbins.
