WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (WTNH) – A family home was struck by gunfire near the Kingwoods Apartments in Willimantic on Monday evening at 4 p.m.
Upon arrival at the scene, police determined that an apartment had been hit by a single bullet. The bullet traveled through the exterior of the home and into the interior wall. Multiple adults and children were inside the apartment when the shooting occurred. All parties inside the home were uninjured, according to the Willimantic police.
Witnesses to the shooting informed police they heard a loud argument between people in the street and the sound of a single gunshot. The suspects were described as three males between the ages of 20-25, according to the police.
