FAIRFIELD — No injuries were reported Monday night after gunshots were fired on Great Jones Street between Ohio and Illinois streets.

Police received calls of shots fired about 8:30 p.m., said Sgt Dan Marshall of the Fairfield Police Department. The two occupants of the car that had been shot at left the scene. Police were able to contact them and found the pair in the area of Chadbourne Road and Lowe Court. Police were interviewing them.

Some bullet casings were collected in the area around Great Jones Street, Marshall said.

A few people huddled on the opposite corner of Great Jones and Ohio Street. Some of them reported hearing eight to 10 gunshots.

Great Jones Street was blocked off between Ohio and Illinois streets. The investigation was continuing and no arrests had been made as of Tuesday, according to the Fairfield Police Department.

    This area, Fairfield and particularly Vallejo, needs to be turned over to the FEDs, a modern day Elliot Ness, who would kick BUTT and take names, concentrating on gang and drug activity. Local law enforcement is just overwhelmed or under trained, OR spending too much time in donut shops. Over in Suisun, at least, there is a fantastic police presence. GOOD JOB Suisun!!!

    JazzAzz, maybe a "Charles Bronson" style committee would work better for awhile?

    There's a nice community of long-time residents with well kept homes in that part of Fairfield. I hope the are all well.

    I urge everyone to check NextDoor.com to see if you have a NextDoor group in your area. It's like Neighborhood Watch via a web page. The City is encouraging it. The downtown neighborhood that is the setting for this story has a group called "South of Texas Downtown." Join up. It's free and it's a good way to communicate with neighbors and meet new ones.

    So we have 10 shots fired and all we get is that police interviewed some people who had left the scene? Any arrests? Damage done to houses, cars, etc? Any reasons why? This happened less than a block from my home. Some follow up would be really great.

    Lil: Check out the NextDoor.com net page and join up for your neighborhood. It's a good way for neighbors to organize and get answers. FFPD communicates with neighborhood groups through the site, but you have to get an active group going. There is a minimum number. My North Downtown group has 16 members. It works if you work at it a little.
