Sacramento police have identified the quadruple-homicide suspect detained Thursday in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood as 56-year-old Salvador Vasquez-Oliva.

Officers conducting a welfare check at a Sacramento home in the 1100 block of 35th Avenue at 7 a.m. entered the residence after getting no response at the door. Inside they found four dead bodies.

Sacramento police spokeswoman Linda Matthew said it did not appear to be a random act.

“We believe the victims were known to the suspect,” Matthew said.

Investigators identified Vasquez-Oliva as a suspect and he was subsequently detained by San Francisco police in the area of Pierce Street and Golden Gate Avenue.

Police said this morning that Vasquez-Oliva has been booked in to the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of homicide.

The case remains under investigation. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Sacramento police dispatch at (916) 264-5471.
