Shot Fired Into Hamden Woman's Bedroom

A Hamden woman had quite a shock on Wednesday afternoon when she heard a loud bang near her Wilmot Road home on Wednesday afternoon and later noticed that a bullet had gone right through her bedroom wall.

Police said the woman heard the loud noise at 12:30 p.m. and found the bullet several hours later. It had gone straight through the wall of a second-floor bedroom and landed on the floor, police said.

When Hamden police began investigating, they spoke with a witness who reported hearing two gunshots around that same time that were fired on West Helen Street, which is nearby.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective William Onofrio of the Hamden Police Department Major Crimes Division at 203-230-4040.
