FAIFIELD —  A Friday night shooting that left three victims with non-life threatening wounds remains under investigation, said Sgt. Aaron Bertsch of the Fairfield Police Department.

The incident began shortly after 8:30 p.m. when police received a call reporting an assault with a deadly weapon in the 1800 block of San Jose Court.

An officer saw an SUV leave the shooting scene and followed it to Travis Boulevard and Union Avenue.

One victim was transported to the hospital from the scene at Travis Boulevard and Union Avenue. The other two arrived at NorthBay Medical Center on their own.

    Assuming these shootings were gang related, here's a novel idea. Pass a law making it illegal for them to get treatment, letting them to bleed out. Eventually the problem will solve itself, and hopefully no innocent bystanders will be shot.

    @JazzAzz, as soon as I read the headline and the location, my immediate thought was, "If they don't want to cooperate, don't treat their injuries." I finished the article, read your comment, and we said the exact same thing lol. I already know more people are thinking the same thing.

    That pesky 'cruel and unusual punishment' clause to the constitution might be a problem especially without a trial first.

    Not a punishment at all. Just let them bleed out AND DIE, before any trial or punishment!!! Problem solved.
