FAIRFIELD — Police on Friday announced the arrest of two men in connection with a May 1 shooting near Laurel Creek Park that left two men seriously injured.

One suspect was arrested Thursday, police said. The other was arrested Friday. A woman was also arrested. Both men have extensive criminal histories, police said.

Fairfield police worked in concert with officers with the FBI’s Solano County Violent Gang Safe Streets Task Force and the Vacaville Police Department and were joined by Solano County District Attorney’s Office investigators in capturing the suspects, police said.

Police did not release any information about a suspected motive for the shooting.

Terry McClure, 26, was arrested Thursday in Fairfield and was being held on suspicion of attempted murder and various other felony allegations. Police said McClure was with a 6-year-old at the time of his arrest and allegedly had a semiautomatic handgun in his possession.

Police said McClure’s state parole address of record is in Vacaville.

Deonta King, 26, of Dixon, was arrested Friday in Suisun City and booked into county jail on suspicion of attempted murder and other allegations related to being a felon in possession of a loaded firearm. Police said he, too, was allegedly armed with a semiautomatic handgun at the time of his arrest.

King was with Lamia King, 26, of Dixon, when he was arrested. A 4-year-old was with them at the time of the arrest, police said. Lamia King was arrested and jailed on suspicion of possessing a loaded and concealed firearm and child endangerment, police said.

Police said the investigation led to searches in both Vacaville and Dixon. Information about the number and nature of those searches, or what was found, was not released.

The May 1 shooting left two people hospitalized.

A 27-year-old Fairfield resident was shot in the hip and the hand, police said. A 29-year-old Fairfield resident was shot in the torso. Their names were not released. Both survived the shooting.

The victims made their way to NorthBay Medical Center after the shooting, which happened at about 7:20 p.m. at Willow Lane and Balsam Court, which is near Peppertree Drive.

Children were playing T-ball and baseball at a field several hundred yards away at Laurel Creek Park. The shooting caused people to scramble for cover, with coaches sending children into the dugouts. People at the games said they heard five to 10 gunshots.

The investigation continued Friday. Anyone with information about the May 1 shooting is asked to call the Major Crimes Unit in Fairfield at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.

    I wonder what led the authorities to these guys? 2 more bad guys off the streets, good job. Hopefully the little girl has some competent family members to care for her.

    its not too hard. You just check cameras in the area around the time for speeding cars. Then keep checking cameras down different paths to see which way they went. soon there will be no getting away with serious crime.

    Good Police work. Based upon the possession of a firearm and being a felon that is a automatic ten year sentence by it self. I don't see any bail granted here.

    Now let's not put the cart before the horse. This is Solano County where accessories to murder get out of jail for posting 2,500.00. Frustrating.

    LMAO. Maybe somewhere else in America, and maybe in the sentencing guidelines, but not here in Solano County. I'd be surprised if they go to prison, and if they go to prison, they'll be out in about 2 years.

    The part that concerns me is that both men have extensive criminal histories. There is a lack of accountability in both the state and in the country. It not only applies to crime, but to Welfare, food stamps, unemployment benefits and being in the country legally. Without accountability, chaos ensures.

    The fact that they both have extensive criminal history and were out on the street to shoot people says it all. Theyll be clutchin a pistol again soon!

    Unfortunately, You've probably got that right. The police and FBI apparently did a great job. Now the lousy justice system and prosecutors office will probably lead to the usual revolving door. These Thugs need to be put UNDER the JAIL and not just IN IT. 1) Either the highest possible bail, or better yet NO BAIL, needs to be set. and/or 2) Since the FBI was involved maybe they can find a violation of Federal law in there somewhere, holding them on Fed. charges. Now I wonder, how many more of these Buttholes are still out there???!!!

    Good job FPD and I don't say that much. Crime sure is rampant in these "High-Density” areas like Laurel Creek & Orchid St. Gotten to the point in Fairfield that you need a cup, a helmet & bullet-proof vest just to play baseball…

    i live on orchid. There's only 2 bad houses on the street. The rest of the block is just fine. Quiet. Until the kids from those two houses come out to play.

    Yeah, quite the "quiet" area. Guess you missed the 100's of home & auto break-ins. All the vandalism , the popped car windows. Let's not forget the parties & the shootings. Just the south end of Orchid alone has more than a couple. Then you have Daphne. I believe the rental on the corner of Orchid & Atlantic was one of the many problem houses till they moved. The kid with the dreadlocks I believe lived there. He was part of the group of teenagers & young adults that just like to "hang out" & watch. One clue would be all the homes with “For Sale” signs. I think (& know) a lot of good folks in that area have had enough.

    I was a Republican for around 40 yrs. from the day I could vote at 18 to about a couple of Novembers ago when I got so sick and tired of the party of, "NO," I re-registered as my Wife also did to NON-DECLARED. As a REPUG, I did vote for Barack twice and have some regrets, but I still know where to place most of the blame, on the PARTY OF NO. Barack has been stymied at every point, therefore I still like the man. His ObamaCare, yes it has some down sides, probably being the main reason for me as an ATT retiree and soon, very soon also being on Medicare to have to use what ATT is calling this, ""Private Health Exchange," another stabbing in the back, but that is a whole 'nother story after we'all gave them our lives, working careers, many sacrifices to time and family, etc. So anyway, his health plan does not need to be scuttled, which is not going to happen at this point anyway no matter whom says what, but just needs some tweaking. Well time to get off this time wasting invention. Y'all have a great day, but I've got to begin my day :-)

    I think people need to stop passing judgement on information you do not know much about.... Maybe you should be thrown under the ground somewhere..& Now days your much safer if you carry a firearm I am a young lady and with everything that's been goin on in this crazy small town and I will be getting my firearm legally so I can feel safe myself... Let's be honest the police don't do much in stopping most of these crimes they're too busy harassing people for stupid things while these crimes are going on... They think they are above us and better than us they treat everyone of us as if we're beneath them...

    I believe you are correct Island Princess. Fairfield is like Fallujah Iraq now ---an the cop and politician thugs are just as loathsome as the ''sons of Obama'' that the government of traitors itself created.

    The bail was set for one of these guys at $5 million..that was stated in a previous article by the daily republic. Praise these cops all you want too...Most likely someone who knew these guys snitched on them for a lighter sentence or to get previous charges dropped!. Which is why the police arrested them. This town sucks and so do MOST of the people that live there!.

    You guys are all clearly jumping to conclusions......there is no way these two were involved in any of this. Extensive criminal backgrounds? Im sure nothing more than a parking ticket, maybe two.

    Happy Sunday indeed. Turns out Mr. McClure has some unpaid parking tickets on the east coast as well. If these guys put half the effort at being productive citizens as they do being criminals they would likely be successful young men.

    I hope they have the death penalty back there, because if they do, it is more likely to be carried out there unlike Calif. where they all die of old age (Yes they do, just Googled), GOODBYE ScumBags!!!!!!
