OF AIR BASE PARKWAY.

HE WAS CONVICTED OF SEX CRIMES AGAINST KIDS IN 1990, AND AGAIN IN 1993.

IN SOLANO COUNTY, AT LEAST 32 PEOPLE ARE SICK AFTER EATING AT A POPULAR MEXICAN RESTAURANT.

LIVE IN FAIRFIELD, WHERE THAT RESTAURANT HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN, JENNIFER.

Reporter: SAM AND CHRISTINA, THE STUDENT MAY BE CLOSED RIGHT NOW, BUT WORKERS WERE HARD AT WORK ALL DAY TODAY, CLEANING UP, AND SCRUBBING EVERY INCH, BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO BE SURE IT'S BACTERIA FREE BEFORE THEY START SERVING FOOD.

THE RARE CLOSED SIGN DURING LUNCH HOUR IS THAT THIS POPULAR RESTAURANT HAS MANY LOCALS AGAST.

WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN? I'M GOING TO MISS THIS PLACE, BECAUSE THEY HAD SOME GOOD FOOD.

Reporter: ALEJANDRO'S TACORIA IS A POPULAR RESTAURANT, THERE WERE 32 CASES OF FOOD POISONING AND ONE COMMON DENOMINATOR.

ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH WENT TO THE RESTAURANT, TOOK A BUNCH OF SPECIMENS AND CLOSED THE RESTAURANT.

Reporter: CUSTOMERS REPORTED EATING AT ALEJANDRO'S BETWEEN MAY 26 AND 28.

HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE ALSO CONCERNED FOR A NUMBER OF DAYS BEFORE AND AFTER.

DOCTORS SAY MOST CASES OF THE CAMPO BACTERIOSIS IS FROM EATING RAW FOOD ITEMS.

DANIEL SAYS HIS UNCLE OWNS THE TACORIA, AND THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO MAKE SURE THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN.

THE GOOD NEWS FOR MOST, IT'S NOT CLOSED FOR GOOD.

THEY'LL REOPEN AGAIN AS SOON AS IT'S ALL SAFE AND WE'RE SURE THERE'S NO MORE RISK.

Reporter: SOME SAY THEY'LL DEFINITELY BE BACK, AND OTHERS SAY THE NEWS MIGHT BE TOO HARD IT TO SWALLOW.

WHEN I WANT A BURRITO THIS IS WHERE I'D GO, BUT THANK GOD I WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME, AND DID NOT GO.

Reporter: OFFICIALS TELL ME IT'S UNCLEAR AT THIS POINT, WHERE THAT BACTERIA ORIGINATED.
