Police: Gunman Misses His Target in South Norwalk

NORWALK, Conn. – Multiple shots were fired at an occupied parked car Monday night in South Norwalk, Norwalk Police say. No one was injured in the drive-by shooting, but bullets were lodged in the car. One ricocheted and hit a car that was behind the shooter.

Sgt. Lisa Cotto gave this account of the incident:

A 23-year-old man was sitting in a dark-colored Buick parked next to 103 Woodward Ave. when a car pulled up alongside and shot at the vehicle at about 6 p.m.

A woman driving behind the shooter's vehicle watched: The car in front of her stopped suddenly and someone leaned out the passenger window and fired a gun at the parked vehicle. She was scared and put her car into reverse, hurrying away, but a bullet ricocheted off the parked car and glanced off her upper right windshield. She could not provide a description of the suspects.

The man who was in the car said he didn't know who shot at him and didn't want to come to police headquarters to discuss it. Bullets had glanced off his car near the left rear quarter panel. Police found other bullets lodged between the quarter panel and the trunk lining.
