Shooting incident reported in Norwich
Norwich ― Police are investigating reports of multiple gun shots in the area of Boswell Avenue on Tuesday night.
Police said they received 911 calls about the shots at 9:38 p.m. and vehicles were seen speeding away from the scene. There were no reports of a gunshot victim but police said investigating officers discovered numerous shell casings in the road at the intersection of Broad and Baltic streets, just off of Boswell Avenue.
Police said in a statement that their investigation suggests the gunshots were not a random act and the parties involved knew each other.
