FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Residents in the Northern California city of Fairfield are being warned to stay inside after police received multiple reports of shots fired near a community park and middle school.

Fairfield police Sgt. Rob Lenke says the department received multiple calls reporting volleys of shots fired about 1 p.m. Monday.

Officers heard additional shots as they arrived, apparently coming from a home. Negotiators have not been able to contact the shooter.

Lenke says at least one house and a car were hit, but there are no reports of injuries or hostages.

The neighborhood is south of the intersection of three major highways, near Interstate 680, Interstate 80 and Highway 12.

Fairfield is a city of about 100,000 people about 40 miles northeast of San Francisco.
