FAIRFIELD — Police investigated a number of Memorial Day weekend reports of shootings in various neighborhoods, including one in which shots were reportedly fired into a home.

That call was received at 1:42 a.m. Sunday. The caller reported a shooting into a home on the 2100 block of Condor Way.

No injuries were reported. Police confirmed that gunfire was involved in a pair of Sunday incidents.

The reported shootings were primarily clustered between late Saturday and early Sunday, but carried over into Sunday night. Eight shootings were reported to police between roughly 11 p.m. Saturday and 3:15 a.m. Sunday.

Fairfield police on Saturday received shots-fired calls at:

  • 12:38 a.m. at an undisclosed location.
  • 10:58 p.m. on the 3000 block of Pecan Drive.
  • 11:19 p.m. on the 800 block of Walden Court.
  • 11:21 p.m. on the sub 100-block of Pembrook Way.

Sgt. Rebecca Belk said Monday that no evidence – to include shell casings or damage to homes or vehicles – was found to confirm that shootings had occurred at these locations.

Similar reports continued into Sunday, with calls of shots fired in Fairfield at:

  • 12:27 a.m. on the sub-100 block of Otter Court.
  • 12:33 a.m. on the 2000 block of Cardinal Way.
  • 1:21 a.m. on the 1000 block of Meadowlark Drive.
  • 3:13 a.m. on 2600 block of Boxwood Lane.
  • 9:23 p.m. on the 1800 block of Minnesota Street.
  • 11:19 p.m. on the 700 block of East Tabor Avenue.

Belk said two unoccupied vehicles were hit by gunfire in the incidents Sunday on Condor Way and Cardinal Way. The vehicle that was hit on Condor Way was in the garage at the time, Belk said, which accounts for the nature of the call to authorities.

The incident on Minnesota Street turned out to be fireworks, Belk said. No evidence of gunfire was found in the remaining incidents.

There were two more calls of shots fired on Memorial Day: at 10:15 p.m. on East Tabor Avenue and at 10:17 p.m. on Hopkins Drive.

Police in Suisun City, meanwhile, received reports of shots fired at:

  • 10:19 p.m. Friday in the area of Pintail Drive and Wigeon Way. Police report that the call was unfounded.
  • 9 p.m. Saturday on the 1500 block of El Prado Lane.
  • 1:37 a.m. Sunday on the 600 block of Civic Center Boulevard.
  • 5:30 p.m. Sunday in the vicinity of Sarah Way and Worley Road.
  • 10:23 p.m. Sunday on the 1000 block of Whopper Way.

    A lot of those neighborhoods have lots of rentals, and some of the rented houses qualify for high density status with their large numbers of unrelated residents!

    How many of these reports of gunfire are just fire crackers??? Probably most of them. We hear fireworks all the dang time, coming from around Gadwall, in Suisun . Fortunately my little buddy, Jack Russell is either used to them after near 15 yrs. of the crap, or getting hard of hearing. And Suisun selling fireworks the times of the year they do, has made it just worse!!!!!

    Most of the "shots fired" calls ARE fireworks!

    I heard actual "shots" and not fireworks near the Marina storage area in Suisun City. It was either Saturday or Sunday, so we can add one more to the list.

    On the FF police log, there is a shots fired call reported on my street, funny cause I heard it, also saw it, but yet, it was still shots fired. Most people can't distinguish the difference and they're all gunshots.

    I think most of us over the age of 10 can tell the difference between the evenly spaced timing of trigger pulls vs the random explosion of fire crackers... With gunfire you hear the rhythm of the squeeze... If you hear one pop... it is not a gun, as these guys are squeezin' till the mag is empty...

    Has Cardinal Way become the new Orchid St.? Must be time for a Police meet-n-greet at Gordan Elementry. Bring the kids, they can play Dodge Bullet.

    Rich Giddens, why don't you just move if you do not like living in the area? At least I am honest about my situation when I retire from my local job I am out of here! How about you, Rich?

    I hate this place and the people that run it and i want to treat them the same way they've treated me. I've filed a Federal lawsuit against Sewer Soon for excessive unlawful force, medical damages and numerous civil rights violations. That and the fact my youngest is in the process of leaving for UCLA along with my wife's career came first.

    Rich you sound like a broken record and will likely lose your case. Ask your wife to find a job elsewhere and move. Meanwhile, put a sock in it.

    I agree. Rich obviously has anger issues. He needs to move to LakePlacid and go fishing rather than spewing venom all day. Get a life bro.

    I'm feeling it too, Dexter. Maybe the DR can send a photog to get another high five photo for the archives.
