Judge sets trial date for accused triggerman in Fairfield shooting case

By From page A4 | November 21, 2012

FAIRFIELD — A 19-year-old accused gang member who faces the possibility of a life prison sentence was in court briefly Tuesday where he was arraigned on attempted murder and assault charges.

Judge Peter B. Foor ordered Enrique Tabares of Fairfield, who has pleaded not guilty, to stand trial starting Jan. 15, 2013. Tabares has been in jail with a $2 million bail since his arrest.

Police believe Tabares was the triggerman in a gang-related drive-by shooting on the evening of Sept. 2 near the intersection of North Texas Street and East Pacific Avenue.

Three Fairfield residents were walking down the street at approximately 6:15 p.m. when a gold SUV drove up beside them and one of the men in the SUV started shooting while standing up through the open sunroof.

One of the pedestrians was shot in the abdomen.
