Norwalk Police release video of Stop & Shop shooting suspect

NORWALK, Conn. – A lanky, bald African American man in a white T-shirt saunters through the South Norwalk train station – a video that wouldn’t be worth watching if the man weren’t suspected of shooting a Greenwich woman in a Norwalk Stop & Shop parking lot.

We don’t ordinarily bring you crime news here at NancyOnNorwalk – we chose to focus on local government coverage in a depth you can’t find elsewhere – but this press release from the Norwalk Police Department is important enough to make an exception.

Police have identified a suspect in the Oct. 10, 2012, shooting at 385 Connecticut Ave., which sent ripples of shock throughout Fairfield County. A Greenwich woman who was doing errand in Norwalk was shot in the parking lot of Stop & Shop. She survived.

Investigators believe that suspect may not be from the Norwalk area, that he resides in the greater New Haven, greater Hartford or New York areas, the press release said.

The suspect traveled to the South Norwalk train station after shooting the woman and running across the street into the Best Buy plaza, police say.

Video obtained by investigators shows the suspect in several areas of the train station, the press release said. The video was enhanced by the Multimedia and Image Enhancement Section of the Connecticut State Forensic Laboratory and investigators recently obtained several enhanced still images of the suspect at the train station.

    Yes I do have a comment
    I think it’s disgraceful that it took the NPD almost a year to release the video. This is something that a real police department would have done in days. However I am all but sure the NPD did have other proprieties as in $$$$$$$ 65.00 per hour dirt jobs on the backs of the taxpayer.
    Also let us not forget our chief who lives out of town promised the individuals responsible for this horrid act would be caught. In the real world as in the private sector where employees are actually held accountable, when a manger as in the chief fails to keep a major commitment
    They are fired or do the right thing and resign. Why would we expect any accountability from the mayor or his rubber stamp handpicked police commission? Just take a look at how many years Rilling stayed on the job all the while as crime continued to become epidemic in Norwalk and while the NPD had one officer after the next involved in scandals..
    Also a side notes to Nancy I do think you should cover crime more than you do. The way I see it when you have crime after crime with excuse after excuse why the police cannot seem to do what they are overpaid to do that is political.
