FARMINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Farmington and Bristol police are investigating a shooting on Camp Street Tuesday that left one injured.
Farmington police say they responded to the intersection of Camp Street and Songbird Lane for a reported shooting with one victim on the ground. Police determined it happened on the Bristol side of Camp Street on arrival.
Bristol police said one man was struck and is being treated at an area hospital for apparent non-life threatening injuries.
The shooting happened during broad daylight. News 8 spoke to a woman who came out of her house, saw all the police cars and was on her way to pick up her granddaughter from the bus stop.
“I had to get out to get my granddaughter because her bus couldn’t come down the street and now we can’t get home,” said Cheryl Maturo of Bristol.
The neighborhood is in shock.
“My grandson, who is only 15 years old, he stands out there to wait for the bus, for the school bus. It really surprised me, and now I have to worry for my family too,” said Marilyn Smart of Bristol.
Neighbors said when they heard the gunshots, it took a while for police to respond, but when they did an ambulance came too.
“It was just a multitude of officers, up and down the whole street and when that happened, I knew something bad happened,” said Cheri Cone of Bristol. “An ambulance came and took somebody away, I saw that happen,” her husband added.
The circumstances behind the shooting are unknown right now.
Detectives from both Farmington police and Bristol police are investigating. Bristol is the leading department on this investigation.
