Police arrest 3 teens for midday Fairfield shooting

From page A1 | February 16, 2012 |

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.

Bail for Gomez was set at $150,000. He was also booked on suspicion of participating in a criminal street gang.

The names of the juveniles were not released. Search warrants were served Tuesday at each of their homes.

The driver of a black Honda, which carried two passengers, was shot by a group of people traveling in a white Honda or SUV. The suspect vehicle fled in an unknown direction. After he was shot, the driver drove to the nearby Walmart on North Texas Street, where he stopped the bullet-riddled vehicle. Police were soon called to the shopping area.

Two passengers in the vehicle were not hurt. The driver was treated and released at a local hospital.

    Once I heard a name on the scanner and it was hispanic, I new it was gang related, and any anxiety I had about my safety quickly disippated. The bangers need to stay in Mexico, or go to Mexico, or kill each other where there aren't other innocent people around! WHat a waste of taxpayers money to investigate this crap!

    I do agree with that it is a waste of taxpayer money and I think their parents should be more aware of their kids doings and who they hang out with but to just say that gang bangers are all Hispanic and to send them back to Mexico is wrong, alot of this young Hispanic kids are US CITIZENS it does not matter if their parents are here legally or illegally. Just to let you know most of this Hispanic families are the most hard working people you can find, they do the jobs that most of you wouldn't do. Also illegaly or legally they do also pay taxes not just you.

    I didn't say ALL hispanics were gang bangers. I will say the majortity of the bangers in this area ARE hispanic. The rest of the people in trouble with the law on a regular basis aren't bangers-they're are drug dealers and thieves. Don't tell me that 99.9 percent of the time there's a gang bust/arrest or sanction that those gangs are not hispanic gangs, because you would be lying.

    I would say that's your opinion, and you should calm down before you have some kind of attack and get transported to Northbay, where you will wait for treatment while an injured banger on medi-cal takes precedence over you.

    So true Gemma. Do you know what doctors and nurses call medi-cal behind closed doors? It's called California Golden State insurance. Hilarious. I wish I didn't have to pay hundreds of dollars per paycheck for insurance but that is apparently the problem with having a legitimate job.

    Long story short parents need to discipline their dam children. Wtf is a teen doing with a gun? Smh go through their rooms & all that!

    Wow! I am in awe at the generalizations going on about people's heritage. Who cares what nationality they come from. Criminals and gangs have to go. We live in California, it used to be Mexico, so of course there is a large Mexican Heritage living here. FYI, Vacaville, Vallejo, the Santa towns, are named after... come on you can guess and it's not Caucasion or African American.. MEXICO. I am a white girl who grew up with friends of all nationalities. Instead of pointing fingers, let's get realistic and find ways of getting rid of gangs, criminals, drugs, alcohol. These people are having children and are teaching them. Stop looking the other way, know your neighbors, be friends with them. Let each other know of happenings in the neighborhood that can be a problem. Let's face it, the police can only do so much, and by the way the budget is being cut, we'll see less of them. We have to band together to make a difference. Start by knowing each other. My neighborhood has a block party every year. My neighbors watch my house when I'm at work or on vacation and I watch theirs...

    I think these racist remaks against hispanics are wrong. There are plenty of gangs in this town that are asain, black, white, or whatever. I have seen plenty of things in the paper about them killing each other too. another thing to is alot of hispanics in gangs are here legally and the learn thier gang ways in the states not in mexico........ By the way I am also a hard working tax paying hispanic with 3 non-gang related children.

    There are more statements protesting a racist statement than protesting the actual shooting. So,shoot up a car in broad daylight, you guys don't care but some anonymous person posts something racist and you guys get upset enough to comment. Yeah, that makes so much sense.

    How did this turn racist?? Its Fairfield, a shooting happened. What's the point of getting all worked out about racism? Y'all should be happy no one got killed or seriously hurt like the Vallejo shooting! And that we had a strong police force to take down the kids who did this! Thanks FFPD for doing your job everyday even if it means risking your lives everyday!

    It is a known fact that most of the gang related crime in Solano County is due to the Surenos (South) and Northenos (North) and they are mostely Hispanic. That is a fact and my comment has nothing to do with being a racist.
