Vacaville police arrested an 18-year-old Suisun City resident they say shot and wounded an 18-year-old Fairfield man Sunday night at the city's Fiesta Days celebration, according to the police department.

Officers on scene responded to hearing a gunshot at 7:44 p.m. and found the Fairfield man with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his leg, police said. The man was taken to a hospital and officers obtained a suspect description and within moments, an off-duty Vacaville officer helped them detain an armed fleeing suspect.

Police closed the event for the rest of the night while they investigated. They said on Facebook Sunday night they expect the festival to resume on schedule Monday.

The teen was arrested on suspicion of probation violation, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted homicide, police said.

Fiesta Days is a five-day event held annually downtown at Andrews Park.
