Police mum on homicide investigation

By April 23, 2014

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.

    Seems to be a patern that they aren't releasing much information lately... Maybe because they have no idea what they are doing...

    Sick of FFPD's incompetence, they have a good record of catching the bad guy. The bigger problem is preventing these things before they happen. I have an idea or two but clearly, nobody wants to hear them.

    CD Brooks: There are positions opening within the police dept. Why don't you apply so as to do a better job since you seem to have all the knowledge. You are completely clueless!

    EMSgirl64, my response was to "Sick of FFPD's incompetence." I would gladly serve problem is I retired and am doing quite well. They need to write a lot of citations and they are not, that is the simple truth. I believe it might be you that is clueless but that's okay. At least you're loyal.

    One ScumBag down. So many more to go. Please Supreme court, rule in favor of us law abiders to get a concealed weapons permit that is guaranteed by the Constitution. May take awhile, but we'll solve this before the coppers clear out of the donut shops.

    Hey JazzAzz... Go to the Solano sheriffs department and get a concealed weapons permit. As long as you aren't a convicted criminal, or prohibited from carrying a gun, they should grant you one.
