FAIRFIELD — Police arrested a Fairfield man on suspicion of attempted murder after shootings Monday night near the intersection of Clay Bank Road and Sanderling Drive left him and two others injured.

Demetri Moore, 33, was the passenger in a white Nissan traveling south on Clay Bank Road when a blue car pulled up next to the Nissan and an unknown person began shooting into the Nissan. Moore allegedly returned fire, according to police.

Moore and the driver of the Nissan were shot. The Nissan crashed into a fence on Clay Bank Road. The driver, a 27-year-old Suisun City man, was found by responding officers, lying wounded in the street. He sustained two life-threatening gunshot wounds and was transported to a local trauma center.

Officers found a loaded handgun near the car, along with narcotics and a large amount of cash in the car, police said.

The blue car and the driver have not been located.

Moore fled on foot, jumped over fences of homes to try to escape, but was arrested a short distance away on the 2100 block of Allston Place. Moore sustained two gunshot wounds that were not life-threatening, police said. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment prior to being booked at the Solano County jail.

Moore, along with attempted murder allegation, was also arrested on suspicion conspiracy, a parole violation, possession of a loaded handgun, possession of a firearm by a felon and possessing a controlled substance.

People in the area helped police find Moore.

A resident along Allston Place later said he saw a man hopping over a fence. He was in a flight mode, the resident said of the man police later identified as Moore. A second resident, several houses away on the 2100 block of Allston Place, said officers had their guns drawn and ordered the suspect to freeze.

He described the scene as intense and said he was impressed with how quickly police responded.

A third victim, a 44-year-old female Fairfield resident, sustained two gunshot wounds that were also not deemed to be life-threatening. She was driving in the area at the time of the shooting and was shot once in the leg and once in the hand. She was treated and released at a local hospital. Police said she was an innocent passer-by and did not have any involvement with other people associated with this crime.

A man who lives along Meadowlark Drive said he saw the woman pull up across the street in a car around 5 p.m.

“All I heard was her screaming,” said Francisco Rodriguez, 52. “That’s when she said, ‘I got shot.’ ”

Dave Colomb, 62, who lives on the 1300 block of Clay Bank Road, said the street gets a lot of traffic but nothing like the events Monday.

“We never had anything like this,” he said.

    Hmm..what could possibly go wrong with letting thousands of inmates out early? You know..the supposed "non violent" offenders? Keep your tools loaded folks..still another 5-10k going to be released due to "overcrowding" over the next year!

    The Daily Republic didn't cover this story today ----> Leisure Town Road between Robin Road and Alamo Drive was closed this morning so that police could investigate a report of two cars whose occupants were exchanging gunfire. No injuries are known to have occurred in the 9:30 a.m. incident, police said. The driver of one car stayed behind to talk to investigators, while the other vehicle sped off southbound toward Travis Air Force Base. Another car was struck by passing gunfire but otherwise was not believed to be involved in the shooting, police said. The road was reopened later in the morning.
