FAIRFIELD — Detectives continued investigations Tuesday into a pair of shootings that left one person dead and three others hospitalized Monday in separate incidents that occurred within about five hours of one another in Vallejo.

Police responded to the intersection of Sutter and York streets at approximately 7:35 p.m. Monday to investigate a shooting and found someone injured inside a vehicle. The victim, identified by police early Tuesday only as a male resident of Vallejo, was taken to a nearby hospital where he died as a result of his injuries, according to police.

The victim’s name was initially withheld pending family notification. The Solano County Coroner’s Office referred calls Tuesday afternoon to authorities in Vallejo. Police there released no new information about the fatal shooting,  including the identity of the victim, as of early Tuesday night.

It’s the city’s sixth homicide of the year.

Monday’s fatal shooting happened a little more than five hours after another shooting left three people hospitalized.

Police responded at about 2:15 p.m. to the 800 block of Butte Street and found three people who had been shot. They had serious injuries that were not considered life-threatening but required immediate transport to area trauma centers, according to police.

The names of those injured and the type of gun used was not released.

Information from witnesses indicated that a light-colored Nissan Maxima occupied by three people was involved and the rear passenger was the shooter. Suspects were only described as having dark complexions. The vehicle they were in was last seen headed east on Butte Street toward Alabama Street.

No new information on this shooting was released Tuesday.

Anyone with information about the afternoon shootings is asked to call the Vallejo Police Department at 800-488-9383. Anyone with information about the fatal shooting is asked to call Detective Sean Kenney at 648-4524.

People can also provide information anonymously to the Solano Crime Stoppers tip line at 644-STOP.

    Not sure how you can be found dead in a car , then die at the hospital of your injuries. Guess he died twice.

    @Mr. Smith and boom: Apologies for the miscue. Police report that the victim was found injured in the vehicle and later died at the hospital. That's what I get for updating the post after 2 a.m. It's corrected above.
