Upon a report of the explosion, the neighborhood was immediately evacuated and called in were the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms along with local police, federal agents and experts from nearby Travis Air Force Base to investigate the matter and search for more bombs in the area. The injured resident was evacuated by helicopter to the University of California Davis Medical Center.

Daughter-in-law Sharon Sanchez said that her father-in-law had cooked breakfast and was waiting for the family to arrive when he walked out to get the paper. It wasn't clear if the man was the target of the device, or if the explosion was a result of a random attack, Public Information Officer of Vacaville Mark Mazzaferro said. "They don't know what kind of device it was yet," Mazzaferro said. "It was a big enough explosion that (the victim) needed to be airlifted to a medical center."
