2 Arrested for Involvement in Stamford Drive-By Shooting

Two people have been arrested for their alleged involvement in a drive-by shooting in Stamford last month, police said. 

In the early hours of May 30, police were dispatched to a home on Ranson Street in Stamford after getting many calls about gunfire in the area. 

The shots were fired into the front of a residence and nearly missed several people, including a 5 and 8 year old boy, police said. 

A CCTV video showed a newer model Audi fleeing the scene. 

On June 6, Greenwich Police initiated a traffic stop with a stolen white Audi but the car fled at a high-speed rate and crashed, Stamford Police said. 

A 17-year-old from Stamford was arrested at the scene, while the other operator, stole a Land Rover and drove north of I-95. Police ended the chase due to safety concerns.

Greenwich and Stamford police departments began a joint investigation and identified Shacquine Narine, 20, of Stamford as the other occupant.

On Tuesday, police arrested Narine and located the stolen Land Rover found at the dead end of St. George Street, Stamford Police said.

Police were able to determine that both suspects were involved with the drive-by shooting at a rival neighborhood's residence. They were armed with two handguns and a rifle, police said. 

Both suspects are accused of criminal attempt at first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, possession of a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a weapon and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.

The 17-year-old was transported to the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center while Narine was held on a $20,000 bond.
