FAIRFIELD — Police are working on leads in the shooting that left a man dead Friday night.

Fairfield Police Sgt. Aaron Bertsch said Friday’s homicide is under investigation and no information was released Saturday.

Two separate shootings that occurred within two hours of each other Friday left one man dead and two others hospitalized.

Police responding to a report of shots fired on Grande Circle about 5:30 p.m. found a man with multiple gunshot wounds in the street. He was pronounced dead at NorthBay Medical Center. Witnesses told police two groups of people were shouting at each other, then people from both groups started shooting. More than 20 shell casings were found in the street. A second victim emerged at Kaiser Permanente in Vacaville with gunshot wounds and was in fair condition.

A couple of hours earlier a shooting was reported in the parking lot of an apartment complex near the intersection of East Travis Boulevard and Kidder Avenue. A 23-year-old Fairfield man was hospitalized and was in fair condition. Witnesses told police a Hispanic teenager fired several shots from the sidewalk on East Travis Boulevard then ran to Rayburn Court and fled in a Honda or Acura.

By 5 p.m., police had issued an alert for a known gang member from Vacaville who owns a vehicle that matches the description of the car that was seen fleeing the shooting scene.

    archie, there might be times that you'd hear me use tragedy and gang in the same sentence. But certainly not in the context of this story.

    Wishing someone to die is horrible. No matter what that SOMEONE is a son,brother,or a father. I guess u should die too, for makin a stupid remark. Wrong place at the wrong time.

    "Wrong place at the wrong time" Not likely. When you spend every waking hour of your life making everyone around you miserable, don't be shocked when no one weeps for you, or better yet, celebrates your demise. These folks have dehumanized themselves in the eyes of the "normal people." When you dehumanize something, it's very easy to destroy it. Just look at the old war propaganda from World War II. Or seek out a holocaust survivor and ask them to explain it to you.

    I don't wish death on anyone. However, certain segments of society are pre-disposed to an early demise. I applaud their efforts.

    It is called the thinning of the herd, and the thinner the better of all the scum, IMO!!!!

    Unfortunately them being alive allows for retaliation. Meaning more people die! If it was yourson, brother or father that got killed you wouldnt think that way. If two people are stupid enough to shoot at eachother in a crowded place with complete disregard for innocent lives( 20 shell casings could have been 20 lives), death to both i say. Right comment at the right time

    Keep voting only liberal Demos in office and they appoint liberal judges whom keep emptying the prisons because the prisoners aren't "confortable" and let these felones loose on our streets and this will continue to happen.

    Correct you are. The confrontation took place at 3:00 this morning. And as I said, I heard one person got shot. (It happened in front of my daughters home.)
