An off-duty Richmond police officer was shot to death in his home Thursday, officers said.
Authorities say Officer Gus Vegas, 58, was killed Thursday morning in his Vallejo home. The man accused of the shooting is 30-year-old Robert Vega, Vegas' estranged son-in-law.
Vega is also accused of taking a 6-year-old boy, believed to be his son, from the home.
Vegas was a 15-year veteran of the Richmond Police Department, the father of 10 children. He was also very active in causes relating to foster parenting.
