California Deputy Turns Himself in After Allegedly Murdering Couple "in Their Bed".

In a crazy twist and turn of events, an officer of the law in California has turned himself in for committing a heinous crime.

According to reports, 24-year-old Devin Williams Jr,, turned himself in today to his peers for allegedly killing two people.

In a press conference on Wednesday, captured by Bay Area CBS affiliate KPIX, Dublin Police Chief Garrett Holmes said someone called 911 around 12:45 a.m. local time about an intruder with a gun. The suspect "ultimately fired that firearm and killed two people in our community," said Holmes.

The victims, a man and a woman, were unable to be saved when first responders arrived. They have yet to be identified.

Witnesses allegedly identified Williams as the shooter, Dublin Police Services Capt. Nate Schmidt said, according to Pleasanton Weekly.

A family member, who was visiting from out of town, was present in the home at the time of the murders and they said that Williams knew the couple but their relation has not been made public.

"It's a great loss for our community and it's even more disheartening to find out that it was one of our own that actually was the trigger person behind this tragedy," Holmes said.

"Our agency's in shock," Alameda County Public Information Officer Ray Kelly said. He shared that Holmes took the call and was emotional after speaking with Williams for 45 minutes, which led to his surrender.

"This is not something we deal with," Kelly said. "This is not what we're about. We had no idea that this could happen. Mr. Williams grew up in a very affluent home, well-loved, graduated from college with honors, was really a remarkable young person. How we got here today will be a part of our investigation."

He added that Williams allegedly tossed the weapon, which Kelly later said "was his duty firearm," and authorities were searching for it at the time of the press conference.

The investigation is still ongoing. No motive has yet been made public.
