Two 15-year-old boys were arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of robbing several teens at gunpoint and shooting one of the victims in Fairfield early Sunday morning, police said. Easter Perkins, 39, of Suisun City, also was arrested as an accessory, Fairfield police Lt. Randall Boggs said. Perkins is suspected of trying to provide an alibi for one of the juveniles, Boggs said. The teens, one from Fairfield and one from Suisun City, were arrested for armed robbery, attempted murder and conspiracy, and booked into Solano County Juvenile Hall, Boggs said.
They were taken into custody during a traffic stop in Fairfield around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Boggs said. Police recovered a .38-caliber revolver from the vehicle, Boggs said. The robbery happened at about 12:50 a.m. Sunday. Police said two suspects approached a group of six Fairfield residents between 16 and 19 years old as they were walking down B. Gale Wilson Boulevard. The suspects made the teens line up against a fence and surrender their cellphones and wallets, Boggs said.
As the suspects walked away, one of them turned and fired at least one shot toward the group of teens, wounding a 19-year-old in the back, Boggs said. The victims flagged down a motorist, who took the shooting victim to NorthBay Medical Center. His injuries were not life-threatening.
