WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — More than two dozen gunshots were fired in the parking lot of a Waterbury strip club in one of the largest-scale shootings ever in Waterbury.
The Republican-American reports that Police Chief Vernon Riddick Jr. said he doesn’t remember so many shots fired in one incident in his 23-year career.
Police say three people suffered minor gunshot wounds in the early Saturday morning melee. Two men were shot in the ankle and another was shot in the hip. About 150 people were in the bar when a fight broke out shortly after 4 a.m. Bouncers pushed the fight into the parking lot, where the gunshots were fired.
The shooters had fled before police arrived.
Police found 29 shell casings in the parking lot. At least three guns were used.
