Police are investigating three suspected gang-related shootings that left three people injured since the end of August, according to the Fairfield Police Department. On Aug. 27 at about 5:30 p.m., officers received reports of gunfire at the Parkway Gardens condominium complex, according to police. Witnesses told police they saw a dark blue or green four-door Buick speeding away from the area of Del Loma Court. A 15-year-old boy was shot in the hand and a 17-year-old boy was shot in the leg. Both victims have had prior contact with police and were not cooperating with investigators, according to police. On Aug. 28, police received reports at about 10 p.m. of several gunshots at a large party at a residence in the 700 block of Travis Boulevard. Many of the people there were known gang members, according to police. Witnesses said several people were shooting guns but nobody was injured. Officers did not find any victims. The gang unit investigated through the night and recovered one gun. Police made four arrests but are looking for three other suspects believed to be involved. All of the suspects have prior contact with officers, according to police. Several of the suspects are juveniles. On Thursday, police were called at about 11 p.m. to Phoenix Drive, where they found evidence of a gun battle. No victims were located. Several minutes later an officer saw a car traveling west at high speed on Travis Boulevard near Clay Street. The officer attempted to pull the vehicle over but the driver did not stop until arriving at North Bay Hospital, according to police. The driver told police his brother was in the vehicle and had been shot. The victim, a 22-year-old Fairfield resident, was shot once in the side, according to police. The injury was not life threatening. The victim was involved in a physical fight earlier that evening, according to police. The victim went to his parents’ home and retrieved a firearm and was shot during the gun battle, according to police. The shooting involved some of the same suspects believed to be part of the gunfire that took place Monday at Parkway Gardens condominiums, according to police. Both victims and suspects believed to be involved in the shootings have been uncooperative with police, said Lt. Al Bagos.
