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.

Sounds like he maybe used to run in's with the cops and bullets. Then again duck tape can fix everything except stupid.

Does anybody know if there is an official point where S. Main Street turns into New Haven Road? I always thought that it changed at the intersection by Al's Hot Dogs, but I just looked at Google Maps and they have the name alternating between New Haven Road and S. Main St. all the way down past Crosspointe Plaza (down to Warren Ave. intersection).

well, there is a brand of duct tape called duck tape, so technically she's right! :)

Life just has no meaning to certain types of scumbags. What if the shooter caught a major artery and somebody bled to death? Or what if a bullet hit somebody in another apartment? We dont need these dirtbags running around with guns. Next time, it could be an innocent victim getting shot. It always concerns me to read about this stuff happening in Bridgeport or Waterbury, but now its in Naugatuck. Great- is this what we have to look forward to?

IT CHANGES AT CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS, RIGHT BEFORE THE CROSSPOINTE PLAZA

South Main is the main road between East and West Naugatuck. Thousands of people use it daily to get across town and we have now reached a new low in the fact that some moron comes into town, shoots two "family" members and runs up to the hiway and back to Waterbury. I really don't have much concern for the two who got shot, but what if an innocent family driving by became a victim? Thanks for the police follow-up but I highly doubt this family feud is over. Hopefully the next shootup happens out of town. What is happening to our town???

LISAP HAS THE CORRECT ANSWER. SOUTH MAIN STREET BEGINS AT THE MAPLE STREET BRIDGE AND ENDS JUST PAST THE CHRISTOFORO COLUMBO BUILDING AND BEFORE THE ENTRANCE TO GROVE CEMETERY . MAKES THINGS CONFUSING FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING TO SHOP ON NEW HAVEN ROAD. THE STATE SHOULD PUT A SIGN DOWN AT THE CORNER NEAR THE MOBIL STATION SAYING : SOUTH MAIN ST- NEW HAVEN ROAD ! IF YOU HAVE A GPS CHECK THAT AND SEE WHAT IT SAYS!

I must have missed something, was this article supposed to be about getting confused about the name of a stretch of Route 63 or about TWO PEOPLE GETTING SHOT??? Nope, I'm not confused, I looked at the title and it says "Two Men Shot Friday Night in Naugatuck" Really, this article is about an incident of gun violence in town and people are more worried about the right name of the road??? Unbelievable!

"QUACKQUACKQUACK". Translation: "You got a propblem with DUCK tape??"

Hey Grumpy any additional information on the patch to clearify things is something some people appreciate.... obviously your not one of them! Smile things could be worse.
Grumpy Guy September 20, 2012 at 02:13 AM
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?
