    A 15-year-old Shelton High School student is in critical condition after being shot in Shelton on Saturday night, according to police.

    Dispatchers received a 911 call about a shooting at Agawam Trail at 8:45 p.m.,according to Lt.  Bob Kozlowsky of the Shelton Police Department.

    Kristjan Ndoj was found lying in a driveway and was rushed to Bridgeport Hospital with life-threatening injuries. He had been shot in the head and leg, police said.

    His aunt said on Monday that someone had called Kristjan a few days earlier and said they were going to kill him, but said Kristjan is a good kid and stayed away from trouble.

    Neighbors said Kristjan had been going to a house to see a female when he was shot.

    During a news conference on Monday, police said Kristjan and another teen went to Agawam Trail to meet up with a group before he was shot.

    "Just heard a big bang, heard some yelling and, a couple of minutes later, the cops showed up and the kid over there got shot," neighbor Andy Vertiy said.

    Shelton High School's Head Master, Dr. Beth Smith, said there will be extra police officers at the school today.

    The school crisis team and support staff will also be available for students.

    It's not clear if police are following leads or have identified any suspects.

    Students arriving at school on Monday are in shock.

    John Rivera's daughter is a friend of Kristjan.

    "I had a little talk with my daughter on the way into school this morning and told her, you know, keep an eye on her surroundings and know where she is at all times, you never know what could happen," he said.

    The road was blocked off for several hours while police investigated. Police said this is an ongoing investigation and ask anyone with information about the shooting to call Shelton Police at 203-924-1544.
