STAMFORD, Conn. — A Stamford man shot two people after being beaten up Sunday, said Stamford police Lt. Diedrich Hohn.
The shooter, 25, was severely beaten by a group of men near the Greyrock Place and Broad Street intersection, then took out a gun and fired six or seven shots, hitting two men, Hohn said.
The shooting victims, both 23, of Rockland County, N.Y., suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. One was shot in the leg, and the other either in the buttocks or stomach, with the bullet going straight through his body, the lieutenant said.
All three men were taken to the hospital, police said. The shooter and one of the gunshot victims were released Sunday, and the third required surgery and remains in Stamford Hospital, Hohn said.
From the shell casings found at the scene, police said they believe there was only one shooter. Police have not yet located the gun he used because he lost consciousness after firing it, and it was taken away by witnesses, Hohn said.
“It was completely chaotic,” he said, describing the crime scene.
The man does have a permit for the gun, Hohn said.
Police are hoping to interview the people involved in the incident Monday, Hohn said. No arrests have been made yet. Police ask anyone with information to call the Detective Bureau at 203-977-4417.
