Naugatuck police are investigating a shooting on Oak Street that happened on New Year's Day.

The shooting happened in the area of High Street at approximately 4 p.m., police said.

It is possible the person was in a silver or gray sedan, possibly a 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata, at the time of the shooting. The first character of the license plate is believed to be "A."

The person allegedly fired shots at the occupant of a white pickup truck.

Police said the person is likely not in Naugatuck anymore.

"The police department understands the community’s concern due to the nature of the incident and the fact that a firearm was discharged. We will continue to update the public as additional information becomes available," police said in a statement.
