The Police were very reckless with this incident. A Fairfield Police squad car jumped the median in front of me at Air Base PKWY and Walter's road and hit a red SUV trying to get to the scene. The shots fired were very close, too. They were crisp and distinct. My husband, the kids, and I ducked in the car because it sounded like the shots were right next to us.

I'm confused, did shooting occur at the fast food place or at a Metro PCS store or both?

They did what they had to do. The people or person in that car just shot and KILLED someone minutes prior to this. I praise them for getting another thug off the streets.

Topic sentence of the online article:

"Police in Fairfield are investigating a fatal shooting at a Metro PCS store on Sunset Avenue and the apparent shooting of a suspect in the case near a fast food restaurant on Air Base Parkway."

What needs explanation?

Both. Started at the pcs store. One dude was shot and killed. Perps fled the scene. FF officer was enroute there and came across the van involved. The van took off and crashed near BK. Dude fled towards the drive thru, cops shot him. I think (my opinion only) the guy was gonna carjack someone in the drivethru which is why they shot him. Or he was just stupid enough to have the gun in his hand as he took off running. That will get you shot too.

BTW, title of article should read 'Fatal shooting in Suisun', not Fairfield. Unless of course the suspect dies also, it would then pertain to both.

One more side note. The air ambulance did leave to John Muir MC with someone at the BK. The guy that was shot there. The air ambulance did not leave with a person at the pcs store in suisun because dude already died. Reporter doesn't have the story straight.

Actually, the Metro PCS store is in Suisun, not Fairfield.

Listening to the scanner, Fairfield Fire actually wasted a callout for an air ambulance to take the scumbag criminal to the hospital.

HEY REPORTER!!! The Killing Happen in SUISUN. Send one of your top (cough) reporters to Suisun City and get the real story. How can Ch. 7, 10,2, and 4 all be there and your not? If your going to do a half butt report at least make it the full truth and not pieced together from hearsay.

The real problem once again is we have BLACKS doing more crime daily. Its time to start a complete sweep of the area. Anyone that LOOKS the part needs to be pulled over and questioned.

This pretty much sums it up. "A suspect was hospitalized Thursday after investigators said he shot and killed a store clerk during an armed robbery in Suisun City, then led police on a chase that ended with a crash and more gunfire in Fairfield.

The incident began after a call reporting an armed robbery and gunfire at a Metro PCS store on the 100 block of Sunset Avenue in Suisun City around 5:10 p.m. Thursday, according to Suisun City police spokesman Tim Mattos.

Mattos said during the robbery, the crook shot and killed an employee of the store, identified as a 20-year-old man from Fairfield.

The robber fled the scene in a green minivan, a vehicle spotted minutes later by a Fairfield police officer, who gave chase.

The driver refused to pull over and moments later, the short pursuit ended when the suspect's minivan crashed near Air Base Parkway and Walters Road.

The gunman tried to escape and triggered gunfire from the officers.

The suspect was airlifted to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. The extent of his injuries was not immediately known and Fairfield police would not comment on whether the robber was injured by the gunfire or the minivan crash.

No police officers were hurt in the incident.

Mattos said video surveillance from the store was expected to help investigators determine what happened during the robbery."

We should post a huge map of the surrounding towns and put pins in all the places where serious crimes took place in the past 5 years. It would be solid pins in Fairfield. I'd love to see that done... and compare Vacaville to Fairfield. :)
