STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford police were kept busy running from one location to the next Sunday investigating three separate shooting incidents, and are asking for the public's help in identifying any of the shooting suspects.
The first shooting took place around 2:30 a.m., outside of the Discovery Cafe on Stillwater Avenue, said Capt. Richard Conklin.
Conklin said in that incident, three shots were fired from a black Honda, in the air, and nobody appeared to have been hurt, he added.
"The cafe is known for fist fights and stabbings, but this shooting is something new," Conklin said.
The second shooting happened at about 7 p.m. at the intersection of Richmond Hill Avenue and Spruce Street when a group of young men were gathering. One of the men became angry and the crowd turned on him. He ran and fired two shots at the group as he was running away, no one appears to have been injured. The young man, who is described as either black or Hispanic with dreadlocks, has not been located, Conklin said.
Three hours later, the final shooting took place on the South End at the corner of Pacific and Ludlow streets, when someone in a white sedan fired two shots at a group of people in the area. Again, no one was injured, two shell casings were found, Conklin said.
"As usual, no one is cooperating or coming forward with information regarding the shootings," Conklin said.
He added, that most of the violence in the area stems from area groups who get upset over trivial issues, such as someone dating the wrong person, or dealing drugs in the wrong area, or someone simply coming into the wrong area.
"What's unfortunate is that in the past, there would be a fight, today they shoot at each other and someone can be injured or even killed," Conklin said.
Police are canvassing the area for video surveillance camera evidence. Conklin said detectives are asking anyone with information to call the Stamford Criminal Investigations Bureau at 203-977-4417. All calls and information remains confidential.
