FAIRFIELD — Police investigated numerous reports of shots fired Thursday in the area of East Alaska Avenue and Santa Rosa Street.

Fairfield police Sgt. Sam Rowland said multiple calls came in around 3 p.m., reporting multiple shots fired.

Rowland said interviews with witnesses revealed that the incident involved a group of people who were standing on the southwest corner of the intersection and a number of people in what he described as a shiny black car.

Witness accounts varied as to whether it was a two-door or four-door car.

A conversation took place between the group on the corner and the occupants of the vehicle, Rowland said, culminating with the front-seat passenger in the car pulling out a handgun and firing several shots into the air.

Witnesses told police that the vehicle then proceeded eastbound on East Alaska Avenue and the group on foot walked south down Santa Rosa Street.

Rowland said officers did a sweep of the neighborhood and found no one who claimed to be involved in the incident.

Officers recovered several shell casings at the scene.

Police did not have a firm description of the shooter or the make or model of the vehicle, Rowland said.

No injuries were reported and police will continue to investigate.

It’s the third shooting incident involving cars this week in the region.

Three people were injured Monday in a shooting from one vehicle into another at Clay Bank Road and Sanderling Drive and a man was later arrested. Several people reported a shooting involving two cars Wednesday on Leisure Town Road in Vacaville. There were no injuries.

    Mike I'm the one who called you and your inability to answer me seemed kind of suspect to me. I left a message with your editor and I hope he calls me back. you put witnesses in harms ways for retaliation from these low- life gang-bangers and I am going to persue this much further and don't think you or your editor can ignore me.
