FAIRFIELD — Police on Saturday released the name of the man who was shot to death Friday night at Parkway Gardens as the investigation into the city’s first homicide of the year continued.

Meanwhile friends and family members of 21-year-old Terrell Brumfield gathered near the shooting scene Saturday evening to take part in a vigil to honor the Fairfield man’s memory.

Police said Brumfield was shot several times at approximately 8 p.m. Friday while he was in the common green area behind the El Verano Court section of the condominium complex, not far from the community pool.

A memorial of candles, balloons and photos sprung up Saturday behind one of the buildings on El Verano Court. One of the balloons bore Brumfield’s name along with a “rest in peace” message, while candles on the ground appeared to spell out a nickname.

Few other details surrounding Brumfield’s death were released Saturday. Police have not released any information about a possible suspect, who remained at large.

Capt. Joe Allio said Friday that he wouldn’t be surprised if the shooting was connected to a series of shootings at Parkway Gardens during the past month. That history of violence extends beyond the past month to include deadly gunplay.

Two people were killed during a gunfight on March 7, 2012, in a parking lot at the Parkway Gardens complex during a drug deal that turned into a robbery. The double-homicide prompted outreach by police and city officials in the Parkway Gardens community that led to increased police patrols of the neighborhood.

More recently, there was a shooting there in early December with no injuries, followed the next day by a shooting that wounded a 19-year-old. Prior to that, an 18-year-old was shot Nov. 13 while visiting a makeshift memorial near a parking lot on El Verano Court.

Police said Saturday that they have taken measures designed to stop the bloodshed. Police also said numerous people witnessed the fatal attack. Now they want those witnesses to come forward.

Anyone with information about Friday’s shooting is asked to call police at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.

    "Police said Saturday that they have taken measures designed to stop the bloodshed. Police also said numerous people witnessed the fatal attack. Now they want those witnesses to come forward." Yeah right, witnesses come forward, so your life can be put under a microscope, and you will be FORCED to testify, in court, in front of the suspect,his family and friends,the victims family and friends etc. Yes, rush to tell the police what you saw, so you can be treated like the criminal. You already know you're not going to receive over 30k in "Witness Protection Funds" like the girlfriend of Matt Garcia' murderer received. You will only receive calls from detectives harassing you,and threatening you with jail if you don't want to testify, and CPS taking your children. Don't fall for the okey doke of "doing the right thing", because the police won't do the right thing by you. I won't even go into putting a target on yourself by testifying. Why doesn't the city or the police do something already, instead of saying what they're going to do. Someone else was shot while sitting at a memorial?!?! Is that normal and acceptable behavior for a community? What about the Cameras they installed at most complexes, and the "no one with a record can rent here" rule? That doesn't seem to be working, now does it? All the criminals are living somewhere,and it's probably with people who don't have records, and don't put the criminals on the lease. What is it going to take for this nonsense to stop? A cops kid getting killed, because as it is, innocent people have been killed, and still nothing is done. Send out a news release,hype the community up, then more shootings and more murders. It's pathetic.There are people living at PG who aren't into the nonsense, but can't afford to move. They don't deserve to live in a war zone, and PG has not been a crime free place for years. Back in 09, my realtor told me she had a condo for sale there that she couldn't give away, and it's worse there now. Just pathetic. I blame the courts. When the police do arrest the fools, the courts slap their hand and send them back to the same streets to commit the same crimes. Pathetic.

    Really?! So you're blaming police for this crime? People are always blaming them for not doing their jobs, but isn't seeking out witnesses and piecing together what happened and who is responsible their actual job?! I'm constantly reading that cases aren't solved because police aren't trying. If people don't come forward, how the heck else are they supposed to continue the investigation? You people would rather hide and save your own skin than step up and do something. If you're expecting cameras to catch everything, you're living in a dream world. If you're gonna sit back and be critical of the police, shame on you. Yes, let's blame law enforcement for our crime problems because that's not completely ignorant.

    Wait, you're telling people not to come forward and help the cops arrest the person who killed this guy and then you complain that the cops aren't doing enough to stop the violence? Makes no sense.

    You are a big part of the problem! "Those terrible police won't do anything! They are idiots! They won't do their jobs!" Then "don't help those police. Let them figure it out by guessing". I say "Get off of your lazy, complaining tail, and start being a part of the solution. Otherwise, you are just a big part of the problem!".

    I pray the victim is not the son of a man I know who has the same last name.
