Norwalk police probe second shooting in as many days

Police say they are investigating a second shooting in Norwalk in just as many days.

Investigators say the victim is a 22-year-old man and that he told them he was just walking near Glasser Street and Soundview Avenue with his girlfriend when he was suddenly shot in the knee.

Police say friends drove him to Norwalk Hospital, but that they believe there may be more to his story than the victim is revealing.

Sources close to the investigation tell News 12 Connecticut that the friend who transported the victim to the hospital is the same man who was shot at yesterday while sitting in the back of a Norwalk taxi as it drove near Austin Street and Ely Avenue.

That location is less than half a mile from this morning's incident.

Police would not officially confirm a connection between the two shootings.

Authorities say the victim of this morning's shooting is not fully cooperating with their investigation, so they need the public's help solving this crime.
