FAIRFIELD — A dispute between neighbors drew a crowd of onlookers early Sunday evening on Minnesota Street near Cleveland Street.

Three people were arrested at the scene, two on suspicion of making felony threats, said Lt. Steve Crane of the Fairfield Police Department.

Police got a call about a large disturbance shortly before 6 p.m. It was reported that a shotgun was involved, Crane said. When officers arrived, some of the feuding parties scattered, Crane said. Police questioned several people over the span of about an hour.

As the investigation continued, police took one man out of a squad car and led him into the backyard of a neighboring home as well as the home where the disturbance happened. A second man was pulled from a squad car and led to the same areas. After that, the police recovered a shotgun from the backyard of the neighboring home.

About a dozen squad cars had  Minnesota Street shut down to through traffic.

Neighbors said this was the second incident of the day between the parties. During the first one, neighbors said words were exchanged, as well as some racial terms. One of those involved lifted his jacket to show a gun, neighbors said.

Trouble began to brew again a few hours later and a fistfight broke out and a shotgun was pulled out. Between six and 10 people were involved in the disturbance, Crane said.

    Are you sure the facts are right in this article? I'm pretty sure this happened on Minnisota which is on the other side of Cleveland...

    Shotgun: Loaded or unloaded? Gauge? Single shot or multiple shot? If double barrel, side-by-side or over and under? Single shot or slide action, lever action, bolt action, semiautomatic action? Round in the chamber? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Fred, Hilarious my friend! 12 squad cars? Two of them were probably sufficient. The other ten could have been writing tickets. Okay, seven maybe? Oh yeah, never mind.
