CHP search for suspects in separate I-80 shootings

FAIRFIELD — The California Highway Patrol reported no new updates Tuesday in two rolling shootings on Intestate 80 near Travis Boulevard that kept its officers busy over the weekend.

The first incident occurred about 8 p.m. Friday when a passenger in a 2003 BMW was shot in the head by an assailant in an unknown vehicle, said Sgt. Mike Lehman of the CHP.

The vehicle was traveling westbound just west of Travis Boulevard with three occupants – all residents from the Fairfield-Suisun City area. The victim was the only passenger in the rear seat. The vehicle was sprayed with multiple bullets, leaving holes in the hood, door and windows.

The victim was taken to NorthBay Medical Center. His condition and the extent of his injuries was still unknown Tuesday.

The second highway shooting happened Saturday during the time period in which a spate of “shots fired” calls and a shooting occurred within the Fairfield city limits.

A 2001 Toyota 4Runner was traveling eastbound just east of Travis Boulevard at about 10 p.m. with two occupants from Fair Oaks. The vehicle was hit with one bullet through the front driver-side window. Lehman said officers are looking at it being a “possible stray bullet.” The bullet did not hit anyone, but lodged itself in the vehicle. One person suffered minor injuries from the shattered glass.

The CHP made contact with the victims in both incidents at NorthBay Medical Center, where they were taken for their injuries. There are no suspects in either case, no motive as of yet and the investigation was ongoing, Lehman said.

Lehman said there is no indication the two shootings on Interstate 80 were related, however, he said that the CHP is working with the Fairfield Police Department to ensure the Saturday freeway shooting is not related to the events of Saturday night on Fairfield’s streets.

On that night, Fairfield police received a call of shots fired shortly after 10 p.m. on the west side of Interstate 80, on the 2500 block of Mankas Boulevard. That was followed by another call of shots fired shortly after 10:30 p.m. in the area of Union Avenue and Travion Court. The final call of shots fired was reported shortly before 11 p.m. on the 700 block of Oregon Street.

Those shootings within Fairfield left one man dead and a teenager injured.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call the CHP’s investigator, Officer Kevin Kershaw, at 510-715-6745.

    Good idea CHP, check with the FPD, who is so good at solving, preventing shootings in their city. Talk about the Keystone Cops (Google that youngins).

    @ jazzazz, some people are part of the solution, some are part of the problem, and some sit in the safety of their homes and criticize how others can't do their jobs! I know my part and I definitely know your part.

    Wasn't there another I-80 shooting reported in the paper yesterday where the driver was shot in the wrist? Also on Saturday, at 10:45 pm? Oh yes, reported by Adrienne Harris? So doesn’t that belong in this article, ya know, because it’s kind of a pattern that people of Fairfield should be aware of? Just wondering.

    There were only two "rolling" shootings over the weekend. The updated information, per the California Highway Patrol, is in this story.

    I remember reading about the shooting where the victim was shot in the wrist. I thought there was another shooting where a 27 year old man was shot in a car on the freeway and pronounced dead at a local hospital. Both different than the incidents reported in this story.

    No one died in a rolling shooting on Interstate 80 - that was never reported by us. These are the only two rolling shootings that happened in Fairfield this past weekend. This is the update from the investigating division, the CHP. I think you have your shootings mixed up. One man did die in a shooting that same weekend but it took place on a Fairfield street.
