A suspect was hospitalized with gunshot wounds early Tuesday in the city's fifth shooting in about two weeks, police said.
The incident began when an unnamed Vallejo Police Officer on patrol near Sonoma Boulevard and Marine World Parkway, noticed a gray Nissan being driven erratically, according to a police statement. When the officer tried to stop the car, the driver "fled at a high rate of speed," police said.
