FAIRFIELD — A report of shots fired Thursday on East Pacific Avenue led to police descending on the Parkway Gardens condominium complex about a half-mile away to detain several people.

The shots-fired report came shortly after 6 p.m. Police responded to East Pacific Avenue at Santa Barbara Way and blocked off the residential street while they searched for casings and bullets, which they found.

A white car had been reported leaving the shots-fired scene at a high rate of speed. Police on East Pacific Avenue were notified at about 6:30 p.m. that the car had been found at Parkway Gardens. Two police cars took off at once, sirens wailing and lights flashing, even as remaining police reopened East Pacific Avenue.

About 13 police vehicles came to Parkway Gardens. Police took people from the suspect car and a nearby residential unit, putting at least three males and one female in the backs of separate police cars. One officer had a rifle drawn and stood behind a police car while police detained the people.

Lt. Brad Collins said shortly thereafter that the East Pacific Avenue incident might have involved occupants of one car shooting at another car, though this was uncertain. Those associated with the car at Parkway Gardens were uncooperative with police, Collins said.

Sgt. Franco Cesar at 10 p.m. said a green car may have also been involved, though this description could change as the investigation continues. Police are following up leads and looking at information from surveillance cameras in the area, he said.

“It’s an ongoing investigation,” Cesar said. “We’re trying to piece it together.”

Parkway Gardens is a 240-unit condominium complex with inner roads. It was the site of a March 7, 2012, shooting that left two people dead and a Jan. 3 shooting that left a man dead. Fairfield has worked with residents since then to make improvements, with more than 200 people turning out for a Parkway Gardens community barbecue in April.

    Add in others of the useless council as well. Price, Mraz, & Moy need to go. It's time to change Fairfields over spend, over tax, buddy-buddy government.

    A little overkill with 13 cops I'd say. Why doesn't the city buy, demolish, rebuild and resell like they did with Elsworth Court. A few years back Elsworth Court was what Parkway Gardens is today. That area is pretty nice now. BULLDOZE THE GARDENS

    Bulldoze Parkway Gardens and Grande Circle and send all this Section 8 crap back to the Bay Area. Its disgusting what this place has become.

    LMAO I don't think people showing up to a FREE BBQ qualifies as "working with FF." You know dog gone good and well, people showed up for the free food. So what happened to the people in this incident that were "uncooperative"? Were they arrested and held, until they decide to cooperate, or were they set loose, to continue their life of crime? The female in the bunch is probably who lives at Parkway, and the rest use her house as a trap house. I said a long time ago they should bulldoze PG, but noooo, lets cook for them instead, and expect change.

  • Parkway Gardens needs to be torn downJune 13, 2014 - 12:01 pm

    You go to a low income/ poor area give them free food and in return expect these same criminals to somehow turn a new leaf and become law abiding citizens cause you gave them a free burger and a hot link?! Lol what a joke! Lol that nasty place has had problems for years. The owners of these properties only care about the rent (paid by the government section 8) in the mail by the 1st. Shoot each other, kill each other all the owners of Parkway Gardens want is the rent to be paid. This area is horrible. And until the city gets a bulldozer out there it will continue. It should be a health issue as I hear the apts all have rodents and roaches. Where's the Heath Dept at? Sickning

    Those who want to bulldoze these complexes: would you like to take up a collection to buy the units up? Shall the city raise taxes to purchase these properties? There is nothing inherently wrong with the land and buildings themselves; the problem lies with a select group of residents. We should isolate the incentives that attract these select individuals to our community and end those subsidies.

    Oh, because I'm sure all you people are absolutely perfect citizens who can do no wrong. Give me a break! Go to each and every door of the residents of Parkway Gardens or Grande Circle and tell them how you feel. Oh wait, I forgot. You're strength is behind your keyboard.

    This complex along with many others dotted throughout the city, is a public nuisance. Sue the landlords like they did to the slumlords in Sacramento. Force them to clean up the mess. Bet we could pay an attorney to draft a letter to the owner stating our intention to pursue action against him/her. Give them the opportunity to make this right before a suit is filed. I'll start with a $50 donation for attorney fees. Anyone else want to put their money where their mouth is?
