Vallejo police are investigating a series of shootings that injured three people in just over 24 hours this weekend. The first shooting occurred around 3:45 p.m. on Saturday, when a subject was shot in the leg as he walked on the 2400 block of Sacramento Street, according to police.
The suspect vehicle was described as a newer Cadillac four-door with “54” in the license plate, police said. Around 7:38 p.m. that day, police responded to a reported shooting at Lofas Place and Tuolumne Street, but could not locate any victims. Shortly before midnight, shots were reported on the 1300 block of Tennessee, but again, police could not locate any victims. Sunday morning, at 4:38 a.m., automatic gunfire was reported on the 500 block of Basalt drive.
Callers reported that a female victim inside a house had been shot in the leg, police said. When officers arrived on the scene they found assault rifle casings on the street and vehicles in front of the house with bullet holes in them. Two male subjects and three infants were inside the victim’s house during the shooting, but police could not locate any cooperative witnesses. At 5 p.m., a shooting was reported on the 800 block of Maine Street.
The victim, a 21-year-old Vallejo resident, was walking in the north alley of 800 Maine when a black four-door Cadillac with 22-inch rims and four black male adults wearing beanies pulled up next to him, police said. One subject pointed a long-barreled handgun at the victim and fired a single shot, hitting him in the leg. At 5:12 p.m., officers responded to a report of subjects fighting in the streets with shots fired, but no victims were located and subjects on the scene were uncooperative. Police are asking anyone with information on any of these shootings to contact them immediately.
