FAIRFIELD — A shooting on East Travis Boulevard sent one person to the hospital Friday.

Fairfield Police Lt. Brad Collins said a witness who was driving just after 7:30 p.m. on East Travis Boulevard reported seeing a Hispanic male shoot at another Hispanic male near the intersection of Travis and San Bruno Street.

Collins described the suspect as a Hispanic male, about 18 years old with curly hair, wearing a gray sweatshirt and armed with a black handgun.

The witness turned around and followed the victim, who was limping, to an apartment building on the 1500 block of Phoenix Drive, where police caught up to him, detained him and got the Fire Department into the area to begin treatment, Collins said.

“He’s not being very forthcoming with what happened,” Collins said.

The victim, whose name and age were not released, sustained a single gunshot wound to the lower leg, Collins said. The victim was transported to NorthBay Medical Center. The injury was not considered life-threatening, he said.

Officers secured the shooting scene and collected a couple of shell casings, while others searched for evidence on Phoenix Drive and recovered a bloody sock cut of the victim’s leg by paramedics.

It was the second shooting in Fairfield in as many days.

A shooting was reported at 4:52 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of Lakeview Circle and Capistrano Court in the Cordelia Villages neighborhood. No injuries were reported.

    Terrorists running around with guns. Here, at home. We really do need to get rid of one or the other.

    Brooks---your endless promotion of the welfare society, police state and open borders has consequences. Like horrific shootings and crimes in your lovely bucolic community.
