VALLEJO (CBS SF) - Vallejo police have identified a suspect in a February homicide as 32-year-old William Cordoba and are seeking the public’s help in locating him.

Cordoba, also known as William Johnson, is suspected of killing 27-year-old Jimmie Richardson on Feb. 4, police Capt. Jim O’Connell said.

Richardson’s body was found on the west sidewalk of Evelyn Circle north of Borges Street around 4:20 a.m. that day. He had been shot multiple times.

Cordoba is described as black, 5 feet 7 inches tall and about 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He should be considered armed and dangerous, O’Connell said.

Anyone with information about the shooting or Cordoba’s whereabouts is asked to call Detective Sean Kenney or Detective Fabio Rodriguez at (800) 488-9383.

Richardson’s killing marked Vallejo’s first homicide of 2013.

There have now been a total of 12 homicides.

The city’s most recent killing occurred at about 5:50 p.m. Monday, when a woman was fatally wounded by shots fired into a Frisbee Street home, police said.

Two other people, a man and a woman, were injured in that shooting and were taken to hospitals.

Over the weekend, at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, an 18-year-old man who was attending a child’s party was shot in the driveway of a home in the 100 block of Sawyer Street.

A family member took the man to a hospital, where he died around 1 a.m. Sunday, Lt. Ken Bartlett said. His name has not been released.

Vallejo police also have not released the names of two people who died on June 1 when four people were shot during a party in the 100 block of Linfield Drive. The other two victims were injured but survived.
