VACAVILLE — Police confirmed Friday that a 22-year-old Vacaville man who was stabbed to death Thursday night is the city’s first homicide victim of the year.

Officials at VacaValley Hospital called police at 7:09 p.m. Thursday to report that a man with a stab wound to the chest was brought to the emergency room by a friend. The injured man was not responsive and died as a result of his injuries.

The victim’s name was not released pending family notification.

Police focused their investigation Thursday night on a stretch of Markham Avenue north of Vineyard Valley Way and south of Wesley Avenue. Detectives continued their work there Friday, rerouting traffic around the area.

The man was stabbed at approximately 7 p.m., according to a police update on the case Friday. Anyone with information on the fatal stabbing is asked to call Detective Mark Ferreira at 449-5258.

    2real how can you call anyone a wannabe with a name like 2real? You are the wannabe you should change your name to 2phony! Now the reason Vacaville has less homicides than Fairfield is because the police are more effective in not letting in all the trash from Fairfield!

    So the victim in the nursery last month, that was ruled a HOMICIDE by VVPD, was a figment of my imagination? More than 2 articles said the case was a HOMICIDE, so sorry Vacavile, you've had at least 2 homicides in less than a month. Hows that your your perception of safety?

    Wanna be's? No what we have is a town where law enforcement has things under control. You can go stay with your real OGs in what ever trash hole you crawled out of 2real. Vacaville is the one of the last places in Solano County where you can feel safe.

    Vacaville is safe now. But wait. All those low life criminals with baby mamas that get continuous welfare AND section 8 to pay for a nice home in a nice neighborhood. They will be YOUR neighbors soon make no mistake about that. Vacaville is a great place to live NOW. But as I noticed going in to the local Walmart last week, THAT is where you will see Vacaville's worst and how it's getting really ghetto and you see more and more druggies and meth heads everywhere. Its still safer than crappy dirty and dangerous Fairfield AND Vallejo. 1+1=2 so who couldn't do Kindergarten math and count the ACTUAL murders so far in Vacaville?? Does this paper ever get anything accurate?????????

    Gemma, read the WHOLE article. This is Vacaville's first HOMICIDE. The body in the nursery wasn't found IN VACAVILLE nor is it being investigated by VACAVILLE PD. He was in the unincorporated area of the county and is being investigated by the sheriff's department. Read entirety of article before commenting.
