Investigation continues into shots-fired incident

By From page A4 | May 18, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Police on Saturday continued investigating an incident from the previous day that saw at least 18 shots fired on Cambridge Drive and Tabor Avenue.

They responded at about 11:43 a.m. Friday to reports of shots fired, Fairfield Police Sgt. Randy Boggs said Saturday. They found no victims, but casings. A house got hit by a round, he said.

At least one vehicle appears to have been involved with a shooter inside, Boggs said. There was possibly an exchange of gunfire with another party that may or may not have been in another car, he said.

“Details are sketchy,” Boggs said, adding there are few witnesses, though a lot of people heard the shots fired.

The shots-fired incident put David A. Weir Elementary School into temporary lockdown.

    The Police control the information that is shared with the DR. The DR may ask, but the Police may, or may not release enough information to make an article.

    Interesting how they didn't report it to the Nixel System they boast about either. I think thier going by, what the people don't know won't hurt them now. If we're paying these guys 6 figures I want to know Ida shootout caused a school lockdown!

    I saw the article and corresponding picture in the paper on Saturday. Perhaps you missed it, or didn't know. It was reported.
