Two Men Shot Friday Night in Naugatuck

Both escape with minor injuries during an apparent family dispute. A suspect is in custody.


Two men escaped with relatively minor injuries after being shot during an apparent family dispute Friday night in Naugatuck.

The incident occurred at 538 South Main St. just after 9 p.m. when the Naugatuck Police Department received several 911 calls about shots fired. Upon arrival, police found a 31-year-old Naugatuck resident who had been struck in the foot with a bullet, and a 26-year-old Waterbury resident who was shot in the calf, police said. They were shot by Francisco Tellado, 36, of 1745 North Main St.,, Apt. C, in Waterbury, according to a police report.

Tellado fled the scene in a Honda Accord, while the 31-year-old victim was transported to Waterbury Hospital for treatment, police said. The 26-year-old refused medical treatment, according to police.

Naugatuck officers made contact with the suspect by phone, at which time he identified his whereabouts to authorities, a police report states. Waterbury Police then found Tellado at his apartment in the city and took him into custody without incident.

"Early stages of this investigation show the dispute to be an isolated family incident," said Lt. Robert Harrison, Naugatuck Police spokesman, in a prepared written statement. "The victims are related to the accused and exact relationships are being determined."

At this time Tellado is under arrest and charges are being determined, Harrison said.  The handgun, a 9mm Ruger, was located on Tellado’s person, he said. The case is still under investigation and further information will follow, Harrison said.

Naugatalk, I suppose things COULD be worse. But hell, this article was about 2 people getting SHOT. It troubles me that people are talking more about where the street names change than the gunplay that took place. I didnt think that we were so desensitized to violence that happens in our town, but maybe I'm wrong. Thats a pretty sad comment to make, dont you think?
