FAIRFIELD – An investigation is underway in Fairfield after an officer-involved shooting left a suspect injured early Wednesday afternoon.
Fairfield police say officers responded to East Tabor Avenue, near Grange Middle School, in response to a nearby incident involving a man walking with what appeared to be a gun in his hand.
Officers encountered the man and shots were fired, police say. Police have not clarified who opened fire, but the suspect did suffer a gunshot wound.
It was later determined the suspect was in possession of a BB gun that was designed to look like a real handgun, police said.
No officers were hurt; the suspect's wound is not life-threatening.
East Tabor Avenue in the immediate area was closed for a few hours for investigators to process the scene but has since reopened. Grange Middle School was also placed on a temporary lockdown until officials cleared the scene.
The suspect has been identified as 40-year-old Fairfield resident Osiris Santos. He has since been released from the hospital and was booked into Solano County Jail on felony assault on a peace officer charges.
