STAMFORD, Conn. — Two men have been charged in the assault and shooting incident that took place in downtown Stamford last month, Lt. Diedrich Hohn said.
Stephen Colangelo, 19, of Congers, N.Y., and Cedric Savinon, 23, of Valley Cottage, N.Y., were both charged with first-degree assault Wednesday, police said.
The original incident took place Sept. 24 when a group of men, including Colangelo and Savinon, assaulted a Stamford man. While being beaten, the man took out a gun and shot two of his assailants, police said. Both men shot suffered non-life threatening injuries.
The shooter lost consciousness after firing, and had the gun taken away from him, police said.
The Stamford resident had a permit to carry the gun, police said.
Hohn said he expects more people to be charged in the case.
