FAIRFIELD — Police are investigating an early morning shooting that left one person dead Saturday in Fairfield.

The shooting was reported at approximately 4:15 a.m. near the 1400 block of Phoenix Drive. Lt. Stephen Crane said officers found a shooting victim dead at the scene. Information on the age, gender and city of residence of the victim was not released.

Police nearly 18 hours later were still keeping a wrap on information related to the fatal shooting.

Saturday’s shooting is Fairfield’s second homicide of the year.

Terrell Brumfield, 21, of Fairfield, was shot several times at approximately 8 p.m. Jan. 3 while he was in the common green area behind the El Verano Court section at the Parkway Gardens condominium complex. He died at the scene. The shooting prompted a response by neighborhood residents and police that was similar to the one that occurred after two people were killed there during a gunfight on March 7, 2012.

No arrests have been made in connection with Brumfield’s death.

Detectives with the Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit are investigating Saturday’s fatal shooting. Anyone with information about either case is asked to call detectives at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.
