NORWALK, Conn. – Two men were shot in a drive-by shooting on Fort Point Street in East Norwalk Tuesday evening, and one of the victims is in serious condition at Norwalk Hospital, police said.

The identities of the two victims were not disclosed and the second victim was also treated at Norwalk Hospital but his injuries were non-life threatening, said Norwalk Police Lt. Paul Vinett.

The two men were riding on a motorcycle at about 5:15 p.m. when the shooting occurred, police said. A white van drove up to them and one of the occupants fired a handgun at them, police said.

The van then sped off, and Vinett said State Police stopped the van on I-95 in Fairfield.

“We have two suspects,” Vinett said, adding that a handgun was recovered in the van.

No other details were released.

Congratulations to the State Troopers on a job well done. And to the community.

It's not the NPD that is not doing their job, it's us as citizens. Mom's who know their kids are up to no good and don't report it, people who know stupid people who do stupid shit and don't say anything blame yourselves . Like really. And east norwalk, so norwalk , west norwalk it's all norwalk , no camparison the crime is every where and it can't be stopped. The gvt has to do their part

I do agree that parent are not doing their job.,. However when parents do their job it is up to the police to do the job and the NPD is not as they have failed..It is do to this failure of the NPD to solve crime that people feel comfortable committing crime in Norwalk..It is time the taxpayers stop making excuses for this failed administration and this failed police department. In the private sector as in the real world when you fail at your job you get fired..Its hight time we take this mind set with the Norwalk police department from the top down.

Tim 100 percent correct

@ Tim T, does it really matter who caught these people? The fact that they were caught is a blessing.

it totally matters who caught the because in the big picture if the NPD were not failures people would not feel so comfortable committing crime in Norwalk in the first place..

Umm you all need to hold up a sec. East Norwalk doesnt need south Norwalk legacy. Really what are u people on. We are one town not separate towns. As for the State police helping the NPD out I say thank you since most of our officers are helping the ones hurt by the storm. And FYI if you don't like the mayor is what he is doing then run against him and stop bitching. This helps no one at all. I still can't believe you all pulled the other side of river crap. It's like we are in the 50s again. Next we will be calling each other greasers and squares and a few other names that are not right.

Once again you make no sense. These things dont happen in front of the police, while it might have been Troopers that caught the van they were going on info provided by Norwalks police. It might be more important to note that this happened right in front of municipal housing. Not saying it was a resident or associate of a resident but it sure seems a funny coincidence. Personally I'm not very thrilled to see this on this side of the bridge. East Norwalk doesn't need South Norwalks legacy carried over the river.

I suggest you read you post if you want to see "Once again you make no sense".

The Norwalk crime epidemic continues. Once again another agency caches the criminals that The NPD can not. Thank You Connecticut State Police for doing the job of the failures at the NPD. I have suggested time and again the we bring the State PD to patrol Norwalk along with the failures at the NPD. This has been done in New Haven. Bridgeport and Hartford and now we need it here... Such a shame that our mayor was more concerned with the police union endorsement than the taxpayers and did not do a nationwide search for a new chief...Instead he and his hand picked rubber stamp police commission promoted from the old boys club.
