By From page A13 | March 12, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Police arrested a 17-year-old on suspicion of discharging a firearm and other charges related to narcotics, weapons and resisting arrest in connection with a Feb. 20 incident near the intersection of East Alaska Avenue and Santa Rosa Street, when a subject in a black, four-door Lexus was reported to fire at least seven shots into the air.

Fairfield police said they tried to stop the teen in connection with the shooting at about 2:15 p.m. Feb. 25.

The juvenile resisted arrest and was taken into custody after a short struggle, police said. A loaded handgun, suspected marijuana and cocaine were located on him after his arrest, police said. The handgun located was similar to the weapon used in the Feb. 20 incident, said police, who also located the black four-door Lexus associated with the shooting.

No one was injured in the shooting. Police said the passenger in a car fired several shots into the air after those in the car got into an argument with a group of people standing at the southwest corner of the intersection.

Police released information about the arrest Tuesday.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.
