FAIRFIELD — A shooting late Thursday afternoon in a Cordelia Villages neighborhood left no immediate victims but several people handcuffed as police worked to determine what happened.
Police received several reports of shots fired at 4:52 p.m. near the intersection of Lakeview Circle and Capistrano Court, police Lt. Brad Collins. Officers focused their attention on a single home on the 1100 block of Capistrano Court, and later found two handguns, Collins said.
The guns were in a vehicle that was driven to the scene after 6:30 p.m., Collins said. Police detained the driver along with several people who were called out of the home, one at a time. At one point nine people were in handcuffs along the curb on Lakeview Circle, awaiting questioning.
Two children were also removed from the home.
Collins said “a couple of shell casings” were found. Officers put down two evidence markers, one about 60 feet from the house on Capistrano Court and another farther away on Lakeview Circle. An upstairs window had what Collins said appeared to be a bullet hole in it.
“Shots were definitely fired in the street,” he said.
There were no immediate suspects in the shooting. Collins said the time of day and the number of people in the area indicate that someone may have seen something. In the meantime, officers were conducting a full investigation as a precaution, Collins said, in case a shooting victim is found, possibly at a local hospital.
“Right now, we don’t have much,” Collins said at the scene.
