Police are investigating a string of shootings that occurred in Vallejo Saturday night, including one that sent a 51-year-old woman to the hospital. Officers were called just before 6 p.m. Saturday to a report of shots fired in the 300 block of Sawyer Street, Lt. Kenny Park said. Police did not locate any suspects or victims but found several bullet casings in the street. A homeowner near the scene of the shooting said she saw a dark-colored pickup struck that had hit her parked vehicle and sped away from the home.
However, it is unclear whether the truck was involved in the shooting, the lieutenant said. Around 6:40 p.m., police were summoned to another report of shots fired in the 100 block of Wendy Street, where a bullet went through a home with several adults and small children inside, striking a 51-year-old woman, Park said. She was taken to North Bay Medical Center to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
No other injuries were reported. Police again found bullet casings at the scene of the shooting but did not locate any suspects. About four hours later, officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 100 block of Deborah Street, where it appeared that another home had been struck by gunfire, Park said. No injuries were reported in that shooting, and no suspects located.
Park said police also got a report of shots fired moments earlier at the nearby intersection of Borges Lane and Angelina Way, which appears to have been in connection with the same incident. No evidence of shots fired at that location was found, he said. The lieutenant said that while each of the three Saturday night shootings occurred in the same general vicinity, it is unclear whether they are related. The investigation into the shootings is ongoing.
