Fairfield police continue probe into Saturday shootings

By From page A3 | April 09, 2014

FAIRFIELD — The investigation continues into Saturday night’s shootings along Camellia and Orchid streets, Fairfield Police Lt. Steve Crane said, and no new information about the incidents was released Tuesday.

Ages of the juveniles who were shot are not being released, Crane said.

The incidents followed calls to police about a fight in front of a home where a party was taking place at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the 2400 block of Orchid Street. Police soon received reports of gunshots in the area and four ambulances were called to the scene.

One victim was listed in critical condition but was stable Sunday morning, according to police. Conditions of the other three victims were not released, other than to say they were stable. Police have provided not other updates on the conditions of those who were shot.

This was the second recent shooting along the North Texas Street corridor.

Federal and local police shot and injured two brothers in separate incidents about 30 minutes apart shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday on the 2700 block of North Texas Street – about three blocks north of Saturday’s shooting scene.

The brothers, Markell Davis, 27, of Fairfield, and Cory Davis, 33, of Suisun City, were suspects in what police describe as “brazen shootouts from moving vehicles” that occurred mid-February in Fairfield and Vacaville.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 664-7876. Callers may remain anonymous.

    I agree with you Rich! It's not just the community. It's all the uninvolved parents too. These days you have children raising children. Mothers and Fathers can't get over themselves long enough to step out of a club or bar and be a parent. Hate this community! Doing what I can to move my family away from here!.
