FAIRFIELD (CBS13) – A man was shot in the chest at the parking lot of a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant on Thursday afternoon.
Police were looking for two black men in a late 1990s white Camaro with a black top after the midday shooting seriously injured a man in the parking lot of the amusement restaurant on Oliver Road. One of the man has a tattoo on his face, police said.
The victim, a 23-year-old Redding man, was shot in the chest. The man was conscious when he was taken to NorthBay Medical Center in an ambulance but his condition was “life-threatening” according to police.
He was in the parking lot for a marijuana transaction but was robbed instead, police said. The victim met the suspects online, according to police.
Boggs said the shooting occurred in the Chuck E. Cheese’s parking lot and the victim then got in a car with an acquaintance, who drove him to the Valero service station a half-block away, where an ambulance picked him up.
The suspected gunmen sped off in the Camaro and were seen heading on Oliver toward Interstate 80, Boggs said.
