FAIRFIELD — Three teenagers were arrested Tuesday for their suspected involvement in a midday shooting Monday that sent one person to the hospital.
Police suspect the shooting is related to gang activity.
Giuliano Gomez, 18, of the Browns Valley area of Vacaville, and two Fairfield teens, one 15 years old and one 17, face allegations of attempted murder in connection with the shooting that occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. Monday on Air Base Parkway near North Texas Street, according to a Fairfield police news release.
