A 25-year-old Fairfield resident suffered a gunshot wound in the shoulder, and a 21-year-old Fairfield resident suffered a gunshot wound in his wrist, Oviatt said. All three victims, who have an extensive criminal history and contacts with police for drug possession, drug dealing and felony assault, are expected to survive, Oviatt said.
