FAIRFIELD — A second shooting of the day left at least one person with serious injuries early Friday night.

The shooting was reported shortly after 5:15 p.m. on the 1900 block of Grande Circle. Initial reports from the scene indicate a victim was down on the ground and shot in the abdomen.

Police were searching for a black male wearing a hoodie who was seen hopping a fence along Grande Circle, moving through Manor Place and heading in the direction of Grange Middle School. Police were also seeking two people seen getting into a vehicle and speeding away on eastbound East Tabor Avenue.

Authorities at the scene were calling for backup shortly after 5:30 p.m. to handle crowd control. Meanwhile police in Vacaville were checking on a suspected shooting victim who arrived at approximately 6 p.m. at Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center.

Fairfield police were en route to the Vacaville hospital. It was not immediately clear if the Vacaville victim was connected to the second shooting in Fairfield.

The shooting occurred about two hours after the city’s first injury shooting of the day.

Police investigate after man shot by pedestrian

A 23-year-old Fairfield man was shot multiple times midafternoon Friday in the parking lot of a small apartment complex near the intersection of East Travis Boulevard and Kidder Avenue.

Witnesses told police a teenage Hispanic male fired several shots from the sidewalk along East Travis Boulevard before running to nearby Rayburn Court and fleeing in a gray Honda or Acura.

Police at the crime scene said the shooting may be gang-related.

Police, firefighters and ambulance crews converged on the Fairfield apartment complex after a shooting was reported at approximately 3:15 p.m. near one of the units.

    "The shooting occurred about two hours after the city’s first injury shooting of the day." Is no one else disturbed by this? A breakout of shootings/homicides in our city and no one bats an eye? Business as usual I suppose. Please allow me to proffer tomorrows byline: "A Hispanic/black male is sought in connection with a shooting which occurred on XYZ street.". "The "youth" was described as a black/Hispanic "teen" wearing a dark "hoodie" on his way to vacation bible school.". "The "youth's" mother described the assailiant as an aspiring rapper, who "didn do nuffins," and as "turning his life around." Need I say more? Anymore excuses i can offer up to reassign blame? Personal responsibility is a thing of the past.

    I worry about any form of an economic collapse, this city would turn out like this even more, the "youth" is apparently not parented properly, and that's what creates this continuous cycle and this kind of environment... everywhere people are too dumb....

    I go to school in grange and when I heard that, that was happening I panicked because i have some friends in the after school program and I'm just Afraid to know that while I could be going to a class during passing period or while im in class anything could happen that I could be at risk of getting injured or killed we do have a campus police but he would need back up because we only have one campus police. What makes me really angry is that we don't get anymore security after this that just happened anything could happen because the police man we have on campus isn't always there we need some kind of personal security it's unfair that they leave us whither even less security than needed
