Autopsies are being conducted this morning on two men who were found shot in their vehicles in Vallejo over the weekend.

Ruben Martinez, 22, of Napa, was found dead in his sport utility vehicle around 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1400 block of Beach Street, Solano County coroner's Deputy Adrian Garcia said.

The SUV crashed into a home and the shooting appears to be from a carjacking and, or a robbery, Garcia said. Martinez was pronounced dead at 10:38 p.m.

A 38-year-old Vallejo man was found dead in his pickup truck around 3 p.m. Sunday in an isolated area of the parking lot of the Deluxe Inn at 2070 Solano Ave., Garcia said. The shooting occurred sometime after 12:50 p.m. and the victim was pronounced dead at 2:55 p.m.

The victim was last seen a few hours before his body was found, Garcia said.
