Police probe possible link in Stamford shootings

Stamford police are looking into whether two recent shootings are related in some kind of turf war.

The shootings took place two nights apart and both occurred in public housing complexes with teen victims.

According to police, around 11 p.m. Monday, an 18-year-old was shot four times on Custer Street. The shots hit him in the arms and legs. Police say the wounds are not life threatening.

The other shooting occurred early Sunday morning on the 200 block of Connecticut Ave. Investigators say an 18-year-old was shot in the wrist. He was treated and released from the hospital.

Detectives say they aren't getting cooperation from victims or witnesses. They say they were even met with hostility while investigating.
