Gun found in Stamford may have ties to recent shooting

A worker cleaning gutters at a Stamford home discovered a gun that police say may be connected to a recent shooting.



Police say the man was working on the gutters at a home on Richmond Hill Avenue when he found the weapon under the porch. Police say the 9 mm pistol was loaded and posed an immediate danger to children in the area.



Police believe the gun may have been used in a shooting at the West Main Convenience Store last week. Police say a teen was critically injured after being shot in the head during that incident.



Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call police.
