FAIRFIELD — Police on Thursday released the names of two of three people arrested after a gunbattle a week earlier in a Cordelia Villages neighborhood.
The Jan. 16 shootout centered a house on Capistrano Court, although another house and a vehicle were hit by gunfire, police Lt. Steve Crane said. After police cleared nine people from the home, they arrested three, two adults and a juvenile, Crane said.
Tracie Adams, 38, and Doreen Hamilton, 32, both of Fairfield, were booked into the county jail on suspicion of conspiracy, possession of stolen property, concealing evidence and obstructing law enforcement. Bail for each was set at $23,000. Crane declined to identify the juvenile suspect. He said the investigation is ongoing.
The shooting was the latest incident in what residents in the area call an escalation in the number and severity of crimes. A number of Cordelia Villages residents who want to make the area safer gathered Wednesday at Oak Brook Elementary School to meet with police.
