FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police said that two people shot Thursday near Laurel Creek Park have critical injuries, but are expected to survive.

One victim is a 27-year-old Fairfield resident who was shot in the hip and the hand. The other is a 29-year-old Fairfield resident who was shot in the torso, according to a police press release issued Friday.

The 7:20 p.m. Thursday shooting took place at Willow Lane and Balsam Court, which is near Peppertree Drive. Police have said they believe vehicles were involved in the shooting, but have released little information beyond that. The two victims showed up at NorthBay Medical Center on their own.

The shooting took place several hundred yards from a baseball field at Laurel Creek Park where children were playing T-ball and baseball. People at the games said they heard five to 10 loud gunshots and that the coaches moved the children to the dugouts.

Fairfield has seen a rash of shootings this year, including four homicides. Police have made arrests in three of the homicides.

Anyone with information about Thursday’s shooting is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous, the press release said.

    Lol^^^ And they said all the shootings are a low income problem lol there have been 2 shootings in low invom6e areas. Only 2. They were fatal but that's 2 out of like 30 shootings and those were when our beloved Terrell Brumfield was killed in Parkway and when Mr. Berry was just shot and killed on Grande circle. Laurel Creek is no low income area and neither is over by Claybank or behind Walmart or in Suisun or anywhere else all the shooting have happened. They want people to believe tha7y so the people who actually live right don't panic but the truth is that most of the shootings are happening in their backyards and not in the slums

    This article leaves out a lot of detail. This happened at the Little League Games of 5 year old toddlers. First of all, dozens and dozens of children, parents and their friends at a wholesome park event hear sudden loud gunfire just outside their cyclone fence. Next, urgent announcements to end the game, Directions to huddle by the dugouts. Sirens and police everyhere. Kids terrified.Crime scene tape everywhere. Confusion and fear. Certain car areas taped off by police. Some couldn't even get to their vehicles to get their terrified children out of there. It was waaaaaay more dramatic than this article portrays as your garden variety drive by. Those children and families are traumatized. Also, why no description of the thugs or the cars? My final thought: it's pretty sad when you have to evacuate a Little League Game. Something is terribly terribly wrong.

    In Arizona !!!! The people have the right to carry there guns legally!?,! To include concealed , they may have crime but I bet those piece of crap thugs think twice about committing crimes that could back fire on them knowing everyone can carry a gun that gas the right too!!!! It's so getting to that point here and won't be long be fire citizens start to fight back!!! Especially when someone is charged as an accessory to murder and bail is reduced from 1 million to 25,000??? WTF are they thinking he's back on the street to continue the crime spree. Then someone who has 2 grams of meth on them there bail is 75,000??? Out government/ police are all screwed up.

    It happened in North Vallejo last year. Be advised if you get rid of low income hotels the folks that live in them have no other place to go but the streets.
