Suspect makes 1st appearance in attempted murder case

By From page A3 | September 12, 2012

FAIRFIELD — A 19-year-old Fairfield man made his first court appearance Tuesday since his arrest over the weekend on suspicion of attempted murder.

Enrique R. Tabares did not enter pleas to three attempted murder charges and three charges of assault with a semiautomatic handgun.

Judge Peter B. Foor set bail for Tabares at $2 million and ordered him to return to court Wednesday, when he will likely enter pleas to the charges. He could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted of the attempted murder charges.

Police believe Tabares was the triggerman in a gang-related drive-by shooting on the evening of Sept. 2 on the 300 block of East Pacific Avenue. Three Fairfield residents were walking down the street around 6:15 p.m. when a gold SUV drove up beside them and one of the men in the SUV started shooting.

One of the pedestrians was wounded in the shooting.
