Husband Charged in Wilton Shooting

Police have charged a Wilton man in connection with a shooting inside his home in November.

Charles Garcia was arrested Monday.

According to police, Garcia, 47, and his wife were involved in a domestic violence incident inside their Grumman Avenue home on Nov. 26. The two struggled with a rifle when it discharged, striking Garcia in the face. His wife also received facial injuries, but the injuries were not life-threatening.

Wilton police responded to the home after receiving reports of gunshots, and found the woman at a neighbor's house. Garcia was found inside the home with life-threatening injuries. He was taken to Norwalk Hospital where he has spent the last month recovering from his gunshot wound.

Garcia has been charged with first-degree assault and unlawful restraint. He was held on $100,000 bond and was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
