**********
On Monday, September 4, 2017, at about 9:58 p.m. Fairfield Police Dispatch received multiple 9-1-1 calls reporting a shooting in the 1100 block of Tanglewood Drive.  When officers arrived, they discovered three people had been shot inside the garage of a residence.  Two of the victims were transported to an area Trauma Center, and one victim died at the scene. 

Detectives from the Fairfield Police Investigations Bureau responded and learned a small group of people had been gathered in the garage of the residence listening to music.  An unknown number of people approached the house and began shooting into the garage.  In addition to the garage, several vehicles and a neighboring home were struck by gunfire. 

One victim is currently in critical condition, and the other surviving victim sustained non-life threatening injuries.  The deceased victim's name is not currently being released pending family notification. 
This does not appear to be a random shooting.  Investigators are looking for any connection between this crime and other recent shootings.  This case is an active investigation, and no further information is available at this time.    Information will be released as it becomes available.

Anyone with information about this crime is encouraged to contact the Fairfield Police Department's Investigations Bureau at 707-428-7600.  You can also call our Tip Line at 707-428-7345, Solano CrimeStoppers at 707-644-7867, or Text “TIP FAIRFIELDPD” followed by your message to 888777.  Callers and texters can remain anonymous.
