Three Fairfield juveniles were arrested for an alleged attempted homicide after shooting toward a residence Monday night, according to police.

According to police, an officer heard a shot fired near Fairfield Avenue at about 10:10 p.m. and moments later saw three suspects running eastbound from Stratford Avenue onto Fairfield Avenue.

The officer immediately detained all three suspects, two 16-year-old Fairfield boys and a 14-year-old Fairfield girl, according to police.

During the arrest, police received several calls about a shooting in the 2100 block of Nottingham Drive. Officers arrived and were told that the three suspects had visited a home on the street, but were told that they needed to leave and weren't welcome there.

As the suspects left, one fired a round from a firearm toward the home, according to police. One of the 16-year-old boys has been identified as the shooter in the incident, and the gun was found near where the suspects were detained, police said.

All three juveniles have been booked into Solano County Juvenile Hall for attempted homicide. Both male suspects were also booked on probation violation charges.

There were no reports of injuries or property damage, according to police.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department at (707) 428-7300 or the Solano County Crime Stoppers at (707) 644-7867.
