NORWALK β Police say they found two guns thrown in a yard near the scene of another shots fired incident early Wednesday evening in South Norwalk where the windows of two parked cars were blown out.
A police officer patrolling Monterey Village heard three shots and when he turned off of Grove Street people in the street pointed him South on Woodward toward Sheridan Street where another shots fired call was called in early in the evening on July 29 when as many as eight shots rang out piercing the windows of two other vehicles in the area.
Lt. Praveen John said that scores of officers flooded the area and two guns were recovered. He said that he did not know if the guns were used Wednesday night.
The officer heard the shots at 6:34 p.m. The passenger side window of a blue Honda parked on Woodward Avenue near Sheridan St. was shot out. The other vehicle, a gray Jeep near Lawrence Street and Woodward had its rear window damaged by the flying slugs, John said.
John said residents were helping police in any way they could.
βThe community was very helpful. I think they are sick and tired of this,β he said.
One city man and a juvenile hiding in a nearby backyard were arrested for simple trespass when their stories did not make sense to police as to what they were doing on the property.
Damien Samuel, 24, of 313 Jefferson St/, Bridgeport, and a 17-year-old youth, whose name is being withheld because of his age, were charged with simple trespass.
In the earlier incident, a minivan whose windows were shot out was at the time occupied by a young family who had just come out of a Woodward Avenue grocery store. Witnesses helped police identify a man who they say was the shooter and a man was arrested.
Although a gun was never found, Jonas Labaze, 19, was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment and second-degree breach of peace in that incident. Labaze pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released after posting $50,000 bond.
