Vallejo police have arrested one suspect and are seeking a second in the death of an Alameda woman on Saturday. Bay City News Service identified the woman as Cacee Savella, 27, of Alameda.

Police have arrested Virshon Darian Ruff, 23, in connection with Savella’s death and transported him to Solano County Jail in Fairfield. They are seeking a second person who they said they saw fleeing the car where Savella was found.

Police said that at 5:04 a.m. Saturday, they found Savella in the front seat of a white Ford Tempo. Bay City News reported Savella had been shot. They said they saw two black males walking away from the vehicle when they arrived, and they said one of the suspects had blood on his clothing.

Pleasant Hill police offered a tracking dog who found Ruff hiding in a yard near the scene of the shooting at 7:15 a.m. Ruff was transported to a nearby hospital for dog bites he sustained before being taken to jail.

Savella was a single mother of an 8-month-old boy and a 2002 graduate of Island High School, according to her Facebook page. She worked and was a student at Merritt College in Oakland, the page says.

Police couldn’t immediately say why Savella might have been in Vallejo or whether there was any relationship between Savella and the suspects.

Vallejo police said they are looking for a second suspect who they described as being a black male, around 25 years old, 5’10” and 160 lbs., with a medium complexion and a short afro. They said the second suspect was wearing jeans and that he discarded the bloody shirt he was wearing.

Police have asked anyone with information about the killing to call them at (800) 488-9383.
