FAIRFIELD — Five juvenile suspects have been arrested and booked into Solano County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of robbery and criminal conspiracy for an April incident at Cormorant Drive and Meadowlark Drive.

The robbery occurred a couple of hours before four of the teens were shot outside a large house party, police said.

The Fairfield Police Department received a report at about 10:20 p.m. April 5 of a large fight on the 2400 block of Orchid Street in front of a residence where a party was taking place, police said. Additional information was received that gunshots were heard in the area of the disturbance.

Police officers responded to the scene and found four gunshot victims. All four juveniles were transported to area hospitals and survived their injuries.

The Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit began investigating the incident.

During the investigation, detectives determined an altercation occurred between the four juveniles and unidentified people who were already at the party when the juveniles arrived, police said. The juveniles provided very little information about what occurred leading up to the shooting. The investigation did reveal that one of the juveniles was armed with a shotgun when arriving at the party, police said.

Detectives were also able to determine the four juveniles who were shot – and another juvenile who has been identified – committed an armed street robbery about two hours prior to the shooting on Orchid Street, police said. The robbery occurred in the area of Cormorant Drive and Meadowlark Drive.

The victim of the robbery was walking home from work when the juveniles surrounded him and pointed a shotgun at him, police said.

A shotgun was recovered in the area of the Orchid Street party and one of the juveniles was found to be in possession of shotgun ammunition, according to police.

Between April 5 and June 3, all five juvenile suspects were found. Four of the suspects are 14 years old, the fifth suspect is 15. Their names were not released.

Anyone with information about the robbery or shooting is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600, the 24-hour Tip Line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.

    Hands on parenting? In that community of Fairfield? In case u have blinders and earmuffs on, those parents are exactly hands on, in that they are teaching and training their little darlings how to be predatory killers...

    Wasn't there an Area Resident posting about a group of teens from the area in concern about all the break-ins & problems in the area, problems that have gone on for years? It's taken this long & multiple shootings to get an arrest (any arrest). Wonder if the IL with the dread locks from the Daphne St. shooting is one of them? Won't give FPD a "way-ta-go" on this one, but I will give them an "it's about time"!!!
