FAIRFIELD — A drive-by shooting on the 800 block of Meadowlark Drive and a traffic stop, after a brief pursuit, sent Fairfield police in different directions about 8 p.m. Friday.

Residents of Meadowlark Drive called police reporting gunshots being fired. One vehicle was hit by gunfire, said Sgt. Aaron Bertsch of the Fairfield Police Department.

Witnesses reported seeing a light-blue vehicle fleeing the scene, Bertsch said.

The traffic stop happened on Second Street, near Kentucky Street.

Four police cars, with sirens on, traveled down West Texas Street to assist. The purpose of the police activity was not immediately available.
