Livermore police make arrest in Sunday's double murder

2 men killed near Altamont Creek, Winding Stream drives

Police arrested a man in his late 20s Sunday on suspicion that he shot two men to death in Livermore earlier in the day, police said.

At 9 p.m. detectives with the Livermore Police Department obtained information that a potential suspect was near the Springtown Golf Course, according to police.

Officers responded and arrested the man near the intersection of Bluebell Drive and Sunflower Court, police said. Police are not releasing his name at this time.

The initial police response to the shooting occurred at about 4:30 p.m. Officers responded to the area of Altamont Creek and Winding Stream drives following reports of a disturbance, police said.

Police said officers arrived to find two men on the ground suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

One man was immediately transported to a hospital, where police said he was pronounced dead. The other man was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Both men are believed to be in their 20s, but Livermore Police Department spokeswoman Traci Rebiejo said that as of around 9:30 p.m., officers were still trying to identify the two men.

The deaths are the first homicides in Livermore this year, Livermore police Sgt. Steve Goard said. Rebiejo said the last homicide in Livermore was in December 2012 when Robert Ogden was shot to death.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Livermore police at (925) 371-4987.
