Fairfield Neighborhood Locked Down For Hours After Dozens Of Shots Fired, Suspect Found Dead
FAIRFIELD (CBS SF) — An hours-long standoff that had a Fairfield neighborhood on lockdown ended late Monday night with the suspect found dead.
Residents of several homes near Cordelia Community Park were told to shelter in place after Fairfield police received reports of shots fired near a residential area around 1 p.m.
Fairfield Police Sgt. Jeff Osgood said that as many as 50 shots have been fired from a home by a suspected lone gunman on the 4900 block of Springwood Circle.
Upon arrival, officers heard some of those additional shots, but there were no reports of injuries. At that point officers from the Fairfield Police Department began to evacuate people from the area.
As a precaution, officers closed an area surrounding Springwood Circle, Summer Grove Drive and Northwood Drive to all traffic.
Police and swat teams surrounded the house for much of the day, and set off flash bombs and tear gas. They entered the house at 8:30 p.m. and found the man’s body.
Authorities have not released the suspect’s name.
