A 19-year-old Vallejo man was injured Saturday night in what appears to have been a gang-related shooting outside an ice cream store in Fairfield, according to police. The victim was shot at 5:50 p.m. in the 2100 block of North Texas Street. He and a group of people were walking past the Baskin-Robbins ice-cream store at 2121 N. Texas St. when they saw another group in the store’s parking lot, police said. A suspect in the parking lot produced a handgun and shot the victim in the leg. The victim’s friends drove him to a local hospital, and his injuries were not expected to be life threatening. The suspect and his acquaintances ran west through a field toward Tabor Avenue, according to police. Officers searched the area but could not find the suspects. They were described as five or six black males between 16 and 18 years old wearing black hooded sweatshirts. Police do not believe the incident was random, and the Fairfield gang unit is investigating it.
