FAIRFIELD — Two people were in jail and a man was at large Monday after a suspected dispute over who owned a dog ended with a 16-year-old boy shot in the hand and the head.

The shooting was reported at approximately 12:30 p.m. on the 1100 block of Dana Drive. Police suspect that the shooting was the last element of a dispute that began over ownership of a dog.

Three people – two men and a woman – came to the teen’s apartment and began to argue with the teen. Kenneth Taylor, 22, of Fairfield, allegedly tried to kick down the apartment door to get the dog, according to police. The teen armed himself with a handgun, and then got into a fight with the two men. The firearm discharged and the teen was shot in the hand. He also suffered a grazing wound to his head.

Taylor allegedly took the dog and an undisclosed amount of marijuana from inside the victim’s apartment, police report. The other man allegedly took the gun.

Police later arrested Taylor and Bryana Mitchell, 21, of Suisun City, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, robbery and theft of a firearm, according to police. The handgun was not found. Police were searching for the other male suspect.

The shooting turned a portion of the neighborhood into an active crime scene. Police who arrived there put yellow tape across a driveway to the apartment complex where the shooting took place.

An hour after the incident, a woman sat on the steps to a second-floor unit with her head down. Dana Drive is a winding street near Solano Mall and NorthBay Medical Center that is packed with apartments complexes.

Numerous shootings this year on Dana Drive have left several people injured.

Three people were shot at about 12:45 a.m. Sept. 16 on the 1200 block of Dana Drive. The victims were later identified as Fairfield residents, ages 16, 46 and 54, all males. Police met with Dana Drive residents Sept. 27 to discuss safe-neighborhood and crime-prevention options available to residents and property managers.

Police Chief Walt Tibbet said Monday that investigators are still working on leads in the case.

A 23-year-old man was shot at about 9:48 p.m. July 18 while he was standing in front of an apartment on Dana Drive. Someone fired multiple shots in his direction. One shot hit his left torso area.

Six people were arrested July 1 and police seized two loaded guns after a resident at a Dana Drive apartment complex called police shortly after 7:30 p.m. to complain about a group of people gambling in the parking lot. No violence was reported during the incident or subsequent arrests.

The investigation into Monday’s shooting continued through the day. Anyone with information about the third suspect is asked to call police at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867.

    There has been two community mettings on Dana and that seems not to be working at all. I think the people that attract all this problems live in the apt complex that yesterdays incident occured because everything that has happend on Dana always goes back to those apts, if it doesn't happend by the complex it happens to someone who lives there. I think the ownwer of the apts should evict anyone that has to do with any incident that leads to something like the one above, maybe that way all these shooting will stop.

    I'm the person that sold the dog to the original owner which was the young man Kenneth. The dog had already received parvo shots. This young man was still paying on the dog that you had. How did you end up with the dog that someone else had been paying for? So far as I know the dog was in great condition last time I checked on her.
