FAIRFIELD (CBS SF) — One person was died and three people were in custody following a rolling gun battle between two vehicles on a Fairfield street, authorities said.
Fairfield police said Jordan Hendricks, 22-year-old Christopher Vanning Johnson and 19-year-old Jesus Gutierrez Jr. had been booked into Solano County Jail after the alleged gun battle on Sunday night.
Officers responded at about 9:30 p.m. to multiple reports of a shooting between two vehicles in the area of Madison and Broadway streets and a subsequent crash of one car near Madison and Deleware streets.
Arriving officers found the vehicle with two people inside, including one who had been shot. He was taken to a hospital where he later died, police said. His name has not been released.
Detectives were quickly able to identify suspects in the case and went to a home in the 300 block of Taylor Street, where several people were detained.
Johnson and Gutierrez Jr., both of Fairfield, were arrested on suspicion of homicide, shooting into a vehicle and carrying a concealed firearm.
Hendricks, the passenger in the car that had crashed after the shooting, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a loaded firearm in public.
Investigators were also looking into a possible connection between Sunday’s case and another shooting that occurred in the 3500 block of Nelson Road in Fairfield on Aug. 11.
