Teen shot Sunday in Fairfield

By February 25, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A teenager was shot Sunday in Fairfield, but police said the victim is not cooperating with the authorities.

The teen, a 17-year-old Fairfield resident, was dropped off at a local hospital at approximately 3:05 p.m. He had a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Police said the teen gave police conflicting information about the shooting before he was rushed into surgery. He was expected to survive, police said.

The teen was no longer cooperating with the investigating, police said late Sunday in a press release.

Police suspect that the shooting occurred on the 300 block of Wyoming Street.

It’s the latest in more than a week of gunplay in Fairfield that has left one person dead and four injured.

Naomy Rojas, 16, of Fairfield, was found shot to death early Feb. 15 behind apartments on the 1400 block of Phoenix Drive, near the railroad tracks. A rolling gunfight two days later in the area of Clay Bank Road and Sanderling Drive left three people injured, one seriously.

No one was injured in a midafternoon shooting Thursday in the area of East Atlantic Avenue and Santa Rosa Street. In that incident, police said the passenger in a car fired several shots into the air after those in the car got into an argument with a group of people standing at the southwest corner of the intersection.

Anyone with information about Sunday’s shooting is asked to the Fairfield Police Department at 428-7300. Callers may remain anonymous.

    Maybe they should have just let him sit in the back of a police cruiser, with the bullet painfully in him till he spoke. These punks are lucky that I AM NOT KING!!!!!!
