Your writers are the worst. I hate reading the CT Post because the stories are so poorly written. It appears to be rushed, it lacks details and facts. So what, the car was found and I'm lead to guess, the suspect fled on foot....

They can talk about gun control all they want. Lowlifes like this will always have one to use. Get into an argument, start shooting. The mentality of these scumbags is scary.

What do you want to Know?? The Police are still on the scene, they are looking for a male who fled the scene after he shot someone. Again I ask What do you Want to Know? Obviously CT Post, WTNH, NH Register, no one knows anything more than what was posted. What do You want to Know?

My husband works where the victim does. As a matter of fact he just punched the time clock and was leaving at the same time (Thank God, his boss called him over the intercom to come to the office,or he would of been driving right behind him!) when these criminals who by the way were waiting for him, slammed into his car and tried to execute him. Luckily the victim is in awesome physical condition (as he works out daily)and was able to run back to the shop with 5 gunshot wounds. It took over 10 minutes for an ambulance to come. My husband didn't get any sleep last night, This person is a friend of my husbands, and he witnessed him bleed almost to death! The chaos was intense! No employees were allowed to leave until late last night.
What disturbs me the most is the fact that these lunatics from Olson drive (which, btw, the victim is not) came to a residential area to do thier gangbanging. The street is sooo tiny any body could of been shot by a stray! It disgusts me and I hope these lowlifes won't see the light of day for a long time. And for the person who remarked about someone being a bad shot!? You suck @ss-O

Nope no shocker that they were from that side of Ansonia- Lester Street is just an extension of Olson Drive. It's about time they burn that project to the ground! Maybe then they can stop the public drinking and drug dealing, which has now migrated to the other side of the street, and people will final have to get jobs for a living. That whole chunk of town gives Ansonia a bad name because there are some really nice parts.

Because they migrate or hide here from Bridgeport, New Haven and Waterbury. I agree that they should continue to tear down the entire Olsen Drive Housing Complex. It has been a plague on Ansonia for Decades. That one Complex alone utilizes over 30% of all Ansonia Police Dept resources.
The Liberty St and North State St areas are not much better.

This was to close to our home. My son's friends were driving back to our house and thank God came across this when it was all over. They came back here telling me they was all this blood everywhere. I have been living in the valley all my life and with everything going on lately I want to move.
