Marijuana plants found after reported shots fired in Vallejo

Police found marijuana plants strewn across the street after responding to reports of shots fired Sunday night, police said Monday.

Officers responded to the 800 block of Winchester Street at about 10 p.m. and saw that a home and vehicle had been struck by bullets, police said.

They also discovered spent bullet casings in the area, as well as marijuana plants on the street for about three blocks, leading them to three homes in the 700 block of Sheridan Street, police said.

When contacted, the homeowners were "uncooperative" and did not let the officers on their property. At least one told officers he had a license for an indoor marijuana grow, police said. The man, however, refused to show his license to the officers, police said.

The homes did not seem to have been struck by any bullets, police said.

While investigating the incident, police received a report of a 22-year-old Vallejo man walking into Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center with a gunshot wound in the arm.

The victim told police that he was not in the area of Winchester and Sheridan streets, but did not divulge more information about how he was wounded, police said.

The officers also had to stop a group of people who began picking up the marijuana off the ground before police managed to secure the scene.

The case remains under investigation.
