FAIRFIELD — Three people were shot early Sunday in central Fairfield.

The shooting was reported at about 12:45 a.m. on the 1200 block of Dana Drive. Police responded to the area and found the victims. They were taken by ambulance to a local hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, Lt. Steve Crane said at the scene.

NorthBay Medical Center is a block away from where the shooting occurred.

The victims were later identified as Fairfield residents, ages 16, 46 and 54, all males. No information was released about possible suspects.

There was no indication early in the investigation that the shootings were related to gang activity, Crane said at the scene.

Police taped off approximately 75 yards of Dana Drive to encompass the crime scene. Police cruisers, with lights flashing, blocked vehicle access to Dana Drive about 50 yards beyond the area that was taped off, toward Pennsylvania Avenue on one side and at B. Gale Wilson Boulevard on the other.

Officers spent the next couple of hours searching the area for evidence and went from door to door at the nearby apartment buildings, interviewing residents to see if they knew anything about the shootings. Police gathered up evidence, much of it in small piles in the street, and were preparing to leave the area at approximately 3 a.m.

The shootings continue a rash of weekend violence in Fairfield.

  • A drive-by shooting at about 6:15 p.m. Sept. 2 on the 300 block of East Pacific Avenue left one person injured. The suspected triggerman, a 19-year-old Fairfield resident, made his first court appearance Tuesday in connection with the case.
  • Three people were stabbed shortly after 11 p.m. Sept. 7 on the 1700 block of Fillmore Street in what police suspect was a gang-related incident.

Meanwhile, a man was stabbed in the lower back after he said he was robbed at about 7 p.m. Sept. 6 in the parking lot of a market at the corner of Texas Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. That incident occurred about an hour after an armed robbery at an ice cream shop on Travis Boulevard. The suspected bandit was caught after a high-speed chase through central Fairfield.

Sunday’s shootings remain under investigation. Crane asked anyone with information about the shootings to call police at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867.

    This example of savagery seems to be totally incongruent with the other headlines--''solano county wins award for being great place to raise children'' etc. I guess your sad excuse for a state and local government didnt tax us enough or spend enough money on welfare and the cops.
