BRIDGEWATER, CT (WFSB) -

The Connecticut State Police said they have identified the suspect in a home invasion and shooting in Bridgewater that happened on Thursday.

Police said they have arrest warrant pending in a case where 64-year-old Victor P. Compe was shot in the upper body, but state police said the wound was non-life-threatening.

His wife, 63-year-old Samantha Moore, was present during the home invasion on Main Street South around 3:40 a.m. While police said Moore was present, she was not hurt. 

Over the course of their investigation, they said they recovered a stolen motor vehicle on Main Street South.

They said they also recovered two more on North Main Street in Waterbury.

Detectives said they've been working to figure out if there is a connection between the stolen vehicles and the incident in Bridgewater.

All of the vehicles were towed and are being treated as evidence.

The vehicles included a black BMW stolen out of Middletown, NY, a Ford Econoline Van from Bridgewater and a green Subaru Forrester from Millerton, NY.

Troopers said they continue to investigate and search whoever was responsible.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state police at 203-267-2200 or text TIP711 with the information to 274637. All calls will be kept confidential.
