STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- Five people were arrested in connection with an aggravated assault and shots fired in Stamford
The incident happened around 2 a.m., near the intersection of Broad St. and Greyrock Pl.
Upon arrival at 156 Broad St., officers discovered a man suffering from multiple blunt force trauma injuries to his head. Officers were quickly alerted to another victim in the same lot who was suffering from a gunshot wound to the left leg.
A short time later another man staggered up Greyrock Pl. suffering from a gunshot wound to his buttocks and stomach.
All three victims were taken to Stamford Hospital for treatment and surgery for non life threatening injuries.
After a month long investigation, it was determined that six men from Rockland county New York were walking on Broad St. As they approached a man and his female companion, disparaging comments were made to the female in which five men in the ground turned on the man and attacked him.
The man then attempted to retreat several times to avoid a conflict and he was ultimately attacked by the group. After a prolonged beating the victim felt he was losing consciousness and he was aware that he was carrying a licensed handgun. Fearing that the gun would fall into the groups control, he shot seven times at the attacking group, hitting two people in the group. After the shots were fired the group continued to punch and beat the man until a passing vehicle stopped and the group ran off.
The following five members of the group were arrested: Anthony Colangelo, 19, of 301 Havestraw Rd., Congers, NY; Cedric Savinon, 23, of 913 Stockton Rd., Valley Cottage, NY; Matthew Rose, 23, of 48-F Monsey Blvd., Monsey, NY; Adrian Gjeloshi, 24, of 3 Post Ct., New City, NY; and Gjon Kolnrekaj, 25, of 114 Sleepy Hollow Lane, Congers, NY.
All five were charged with first-degree assault. Bond was set at $25,000 for each.
The victim was treated and released from Stamford Hospital for blunt force trauma injuries to his head and torso.
After consulting with the State's Attorney's Office no charges will be levied on the victim in that he acted in self defense.
