Stamford police investigating two separate incidents of gunfire

Posted: Updated:

The Stamford Police Department is investigating two separate incidents of gunfire that happened Friday night on the West Side part of town.

The first incident occurred around 9:24 p.m. in the area of 41 Orchard Street. Police were alerted of 3 to 4 gunshots being fired in that area.

When patrol units arrived, they found nothing at the time. Approximately 15 minutes later, a male arrived at Stamford Hospital complaining up two gunshot wounds to the left hip and right calf, according to police.

The 25-year-old Stamford victim said that he was walking on Orchard St. and was shot by an unknown person. A witness said that three to four shots were fired from a gray minivan, which then departed backwards up Orchard St. after the shooting.

Officers searched the area and found several shell casings near 29 Orchard Street. Stamford BCI and the Crime Scene unit responded and processed the scene. The victim is expected to live.

The second incident happened around 11:40 p.m. on Friday night in the area of 152 Myano Lane. According to police, they received a call about four to five shots being fired in this area.

Officers responded to the scene and found nothing at the time. At approximately 7:58 a.m. Saturday, a homeowner at 127 Myano La. woke up and found two bullet holes in her bedroom window.

The homeowner heard the gunfire the night before, but did not think that the shots were fired into her apartment. The rounds were discovered approximately 5 ft. from where the homeowner slept, according to police.

Stamford Police are asking anyone that has information on these two shootings to call Stamford police Detective Bureau at 203-977-4417.
