Three Men Injured in Downtown Stamford Shooting, Assault

One victim suffered multiple blunt force trauma injuries to his head, while the other two suffered multiple gunshot wounds, according to Lt. Diedrich Hohn.


Three men received treatment for non-life threatening injuries at Stamford Hospital following a shooting and aggravated assault at Broad Street and Greyrock Place early Sunday morning, according to a statement released by Lt. Diedrich Hohn of the Stamford Police Department.

Two of the victims were released from the hospital Monday morning, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Officers responded to shots fired at around 2:10 a.m on Sunday at the intersection of Broad Street and Greyrock Place, Hohn said. Upon arrival, they discovered a male suffering from multiple blunt force trauma injuries to his head at 156 Broad St. They were then alerted to a second victim who suffered a gunshot wound to the left leg. According to Hohn, a third victim was discovered staggering up Greyrock Place and suffering from a gunshot wound to his buttocks and stomach.

The dispute between the three victims—one is a 26 year-old from Stamford and the other two are 23 year-olds from Rockland County—started at a nearby restaurant, according to the Advocate.

The gun that was used at the scene was not recovered, Hohn said, but several shell casings were found. Capt. Richard Conklin told the Advocate that the gun used in the incident was a .380-caliber semi-automatic pistol. The victim who possessed the gun had a valid permit, according to Hohn.

No arrests have been made.
