FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police on Monday remained tight-lipped about a Saturday shooting that left a 27-year-old Fairfield resident dead.
Sgt. Troy Oviatt said police at that time would release no information other than what had been included in the initial press release. Doing otherwise could jeopardize the investigation, he said.
The press release said police at 10:45 p.m Saturday went to NorthBay Medical Center after two gunshot victims arrived there. The 27-year-old man died. A 15-year-old boy was treated for a gunshot wound to the shoulder and released.
Among the questions still unanswered by police is where the shootings took place and the identity of the slain man. The fatal shooting was the fifth homicide of the year in the Fairfield-Suisun area and the third in an eight-day period.
