FAIRFIELD — Police are investigating a shooting that left one person injured Thursday outside a store on East Pacific Avenue and Santa Ana Drive, near North Texas Street.

The victim was shot once in the leg at approximately 8:20 p.m. and was transported to NorthBay Medical Center with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, police Lt. Brad Collins said.

Collins said early indications are that the victim was involved in some sort of argument with the suspects inside the Food Fair Market on the 100 block of East Pacific Avenue.

“Once the victim came out, they were waiting for him,” Collins said.

Medics and officers found the victim in the gutter in front of the store.

Police believe the suspects, two Hispanic males, fled eastbound on East Pacific Avenue in a light-colored sport utility vehicle. Police were clearing the scene by 8:45 p.m.

Collins said there were no direct witnesses to the shooting and there was very little evidence to collect.

The Food Fair Market appeared to have a working security camera. Collins said police would try to look at any footage.

One witness reported hearing several shots while he waited in his car at the McDonald’s restaurant next to the market.

“It was 10 or 15 rounds, that’s how I knew it wasn’t fireworks,” he said.

Collins said there was no indication that the shooting might be gang related. He said police have not had any gang-related contacts with the victim, who was identified as a 20-year-old Hispanic male and a Fairfield resident.

Thursday’s shooting dredged up memories of several years ago, before the market was closed for three years because of criminal activity in the area.

The shooting continues a spate of gunplay in Fairfield that in the past two weeks has left one person dead and five others injured.

Naomy Rojas, 16, of Fairfield, was found shot to death early Feb. 15 behind apartments on the 1400 block of Phoenix Drive, near the railroad tracks. A rolling gunfight Feb. 17 in the area of Clay Bank Road and Sanderling Drive left three people injured, one seriously.

No one was injured in a midafternoon shooting Feb. 20 in the area of East Atlantic Avenue and Santa Rosa Street. In that incident, 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.

A 17-year-old Fairfield boy was shot in the abdomen shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday on the 300 block of Wyoming Street. He was dropped off at the hospital after the shooting and rushed into surgery. Police said the teen was not cooperating with the investigation.

Anyone with information about Thursday’s shooting is asked to the Fairfield Police Department at 428-7300. Callers may remain anonymous.

    Cruise, gone. Bowling alley, gone. Skating rink, gone. Hell, if I was a kid in Fairfield, I might start rollin around on people for lack of anything better to do. Well I guess that's what I get for living in this Mormon town. You'll never have a dance hall or a card house here for sure.

    Why are the names missing? Numerous stories are void of any real content. People want to know who these people are not that it was a 20 yr old Hispanic. I see a lot of this even when the suspects are known.
