Police in Santa Rosa are investigating a Friday night shooting that apparently occurred during a drug deal. Officers responded to a report of a shooting around 11:35 p.m. Friday in the 1000 block of Bellevue Avenue and found Fairfield resident Denzel Simmons, 20, suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.Simmons told police he had been smoking a cigarette outside a relative’s apartment there when he was suddenly shot. He was taken to a nearby hospital.
About 15 minutes later, police responded to a home on Cornell Drive where 21-year-old Savon Cleveland, and Frank Kobrin, 22, reported involvement in a shooting with a man who put a gun to Cleveland’s face. After interviewing the three men, detectives determined that Cleveland and Kobrin allegedly met with Simmons to buy some marijuana. Simmons allegedly pulled a gun on Cleveland and tried to rob him, prompting Kobrin to shoot the Fairfield man in the leg. Police continue to investigate the shooting and have not made any arrests.
