Vallejo PD Investigates June 3, 2021 Multi-Victim Shooting Incident
Posted on 06/04/2021
On June 3, 2021 at approximately 10:11 p.m., Vallejo Police Officers responded to the report of a shooting in the 1000 block of Caldwell Avenue. Upon arrival, officers located a 27-year-old female, 18-year-old male, and 16-year-old juvenile (female) each suffering from at least one gunshot wound. 

Both female victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries and are listed in serious critical condition as of 6/4/21 at noon. The male victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and is in stable condition. All victims are residents of Vallejo. 

At the time of the shooting incident, the victims were sitting in their vehicle when a suspect vehicle drove by and fired multiple shots into the victims’ vehicle. No suspect information is available at this time. 

“This devastating multi-victim shooting is yet another example of why we must have a unified and multi-disciplinary approach to eradicating gun violence in the City of Vallejo," Chief of Police Shawny Williams stated. "Victims and their families are suffering trauma on a daily basis and we cannot allow lawless individuals to continue harming our community.” 
“While Operation PEACE and our ALPR technology have helped the Department make significant strides in addressing gun violence, we cannot stop here and more importantly, we cannot do this alone," Chief Williams continued. "The epidemic of gun violence is a public health crisis that demands collaboration on a national, state and local level."

In the near future, the Vallejo Police Department will be hosting a community town hall meeting in impacted neighborhoods to discuss gun violence, better understand community concerns and present solutions for ending gun violence in the City of Vallejo. We welcome collaboration and participation from all City and community stakeholders and will provide additional details in the days to come.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to contact Detective Josh Caitham at 707-648-4343 or Detective Craig Long at 707-648-4514.
