Fairfield police: Man shot while driving on I-80

By From page A1 | April 21, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A man was shot Saturday while traveling on Interstate 80 in Fairfield.

Police received a call about 10:45 p.m. from NorthBay Medical Center, reporting that a man with a gunshot wound arrived at the hospital, said Sgt. Kelly Romback.

The victim told police he was driving with his wife on eastbound Interstate 80 within the city limits when a red Jeep Cherokee drove alongside him and fired one round into the vehicle, Romback said. The man was shot in his wrist, Romback said.

There were few details Sunday about the rolling shooting. Romback said the California Highway Patrol took over the investigation. CHP officials could not be reached for comment.

    Why is this article up but yet there's no article up on the homicde shooting from last night? Has the DR received orders from its tyrant government master on what to print?

    Those red lights are the biggest waste of money, 2 seconds after getting the "green" you are stopped again in a long line waiting to merge onto the freeway, what's the point!

    Maybe some of that money could have been spent on law enforcement.

    What is happening to this city?! It's frustrating that so little information is out on this story as someone who drives on east 80 each night through Fairfield. This city has been going to hell since the beginning of the year.
