The brother of popular Sacramento rapper Uzzy Marcus was reportedly arrested on Saturday (January 30) for the murders of two women. According to The U.S. Sun,Raymond “Zino” Weber live-streamed the aftermath of the killings on Instagram, showing both deceased women laying on the floor of a Vacaville apartment complex.
A woman first alerted 911 after she saw the suspect on the live stream with a handgun and the two women “lying motionless.” Officers were dispatched for a welfare check at 12:42 a.m. local time and discovered Weber had barricaded himself inside.
In the clip, Weber claims his brother and one of the deceased women tried to “set him up” as a lit cigarette dangles from his mouth.

Officers were forced to evacuate the whole building and fire flashbang stun grenades through the windows before storming inside and hitting him with a taser. A SWAT team and specialist negotiators were also sent to the scene, but the suspect refused to open the door.
“Negotiations were attempted, however they were unsuccessful,” Vacaville Police Department said on Facebook. “Out of an abundance of caution, the other units in the apartment building were evacuated as distraction devices and chemical agents were deployed in an attempt to have the man surrender.
“Eventually, officers entered the apartment and found the man hiding inside. After a brief struggle — during which an officer utilized a taser — the man was taken into custody at approximately 8:32 a.m.”
Eight hours later, Weber was finally arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He’s currently being held in Solano County Jail without bail. Police said he already had an outstanding warrant for various felonies, including domestic battery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Meanwhile, Weber’s rapper brother has been holed up at Sacramento County Jail on charges of endangering the life or health of a child and possession of a firearm by a felon since January 12, while a third brother named Antoine is also behind bars for allegedly killing Weber’s girlfriend in 2014. Antoine pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter that year.
