FAIRFIELD (3:30 p.m.) — A crowd of onlookers watched Monday afternoon as police examined a black Honda with several bullet holes on the driver’s side, located in the parking lot of the Walmart supercenter on North Texas Street.

Police were called to the scene about 1:30 p.m.

The car had come to rest just a few spaces into the parking lot, outside the door that accesses the store’s market.

Police make arrests in connection with Monday’s midday shooting.

The driver of the Honda, which carried two passengers, was shot near North Texas Street and Air Base Parkway by three or four people traveling in a white Honda or SUV. The suspect vehicle fled in an unknown direction.

The driver of the black Honda drove the car to Walmart, said Lt. Al Bagos of the Fairfield Police Department. He was treated and released at a local hospital, according to a Monday night press release.

There were two passengers in the car, another male and a female. They were not injured and were being interviewed at the police station, Bagos said.

Bagos said that police would examine store surveillance video looking for more information.

Suisun City resident Mary Mundy said she was in the store for about 15 minutes and didn’t hear anything.

“I went in and everything was fine. Then, I came out to this,” she said of the area cordoned off by crime scene tape. “It’s getting to where you can’t feel safe anywhere.”

Vacaville’s Anthony Guglielmoni was traveling down North Texas Street when he pulled over to take a picture of the scene.

He said he wasn’t sure if he would share the pictures or save them.

The car was towed away shortly after 2 p.m.

Anyone with information about the identity of the shooter or about the shooting itself is asked to call the Police Department’s Investigations Division at 428-7600 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. A Crime Stoppers reward of up to $1,000 is available for information leading to the arrest of the suspects in this case, according to the Monday night release.

Reach Amy Maginnis-Honey at 427-6957 or amaginnis@dailyrepublic.net.

This versions adds the treatment status of the victim and information about a reward in the case.

    I'm sure we'll be getting another FPD communique saying crime rates are down other 10%. Never mind the newspaper stories of these heinous violent crimes you read on a daily basis...We've got everything under control and we have the numbers to prove it! Fairfield's real crime rate is no better than Vallejo, Richmond or Oakland. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/ca/crime/

    It is apparent that you are out of touch with reality. You are comparing the crime rate no better then Oakland, Richmond and Vallejo? REALLY? Wow..It sounds like you received your information from the safety of your computer and do not really know the workings of those other cities. Each city is unique to itself to their individual challenges but one thing is for sure there are two types of people that make a community better. Those who sit and do nothing but yet scorn those who try to do something good. And those who get off their rear end and do something in spite of the challenges in hope to make the community better. Which one are you?

    Does it take a curfew much less the National Guard and martial law to be declared? Let's hope not. Our essential freedoms are already slowly eroding. The NDAA which Obama signed while he vacationed in Hawaii which would arrest Americans if they are found to be terrorists could also apply to vandals, anarcharists, gangbangers, thugs, and those hardened criminals released from our Ca prisons. Read about IT and think of the possiblities.

    This incident is another example of why we don't need or want a Wal-Mart in Suisun City!!

    George--You're kidding, right? WalMart caused this? Hahahahahahaha! Maybe it was Bush, or global warming.

    George, I think the incident occurred in the area of Air Base Pkwy at North Texas and had nothing to do with Walmart other then the vehicle driving to the parking lot.

    George is always right and thinks he talks on behalf of how everyone feels. Notice how he said "we" instead of I? The guy saw Walmart in the story and felt he needed to get his couple of pennies in on how no one want's a Walmart in Suisun.

    @Artimuse Yeah I'm out of touch with reality...I sure wish the Daily Republic would quit writing false stories about all these shootings, robbery's and other heinous violent crimes in our City. Doesn't the DR know that Reality Deficient City Residents are going to actually believe these stories they write?

    I did not say that there is no violent crimes occurring in our city; I am addressing your assertion that this city is no better then Oakland, Richmond and Vallejo when it comes to crime rates. I am very familiar with those cities which is the reason why I moved here and it does not compare. However to give you some credit; yes, there are many problems in our town but what can we all do realistically to make our town better? I don't slamming the P.D. unjustly is one of them.

    @Artimuse FPD coming out and saying crime rates are down is flat out not true..Besides the daily articles in the DR, there's just to much evidence to the contrary. that's why I posted that link to the City crime rate tracker. Fairfield is literally right there with Vallejo, Richmond and Oakland for crime. Nobody is making this up..The Daily Republic isn't making these stories up! Take a look for yourself. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/ca/crime/
