CHICO, Calif. — A busy Saturday night for the Chico Police Department turned positively frantic right around midnight as police responded to an assault, a felony hit-and-run accident, an attempted robbery and two shootings between 11:50 p.m. and 3:08 a.m.

It started just before midnight with a report of a fight at West Third and Ivy streets. Police said when officers arrived, a victim whose name was not released was unconscious in the street. Witnesses said several males kicked and punched the victim.
