Suspended officer shot and killed self

A San Francisco police inspector who was suspended after being charged in 2004 with drugging and raping a woman three years ago, died last week of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Solano County coroner officials said Monday.

Wilfredo Gonzalez, 38, did not show up for a preliminary hearing in Solano County Superior Court on the rape charges Thursday, and a relative who later checked on him found him dead in his Vacaville home, said Vacaville police Lt. Craig Courtemanche.
