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.
The suspect is observed to be a black man in his 20s, with a thin build, 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall, wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers, with a bald head and goatee or chin-strap-style facial hair, police say. The suspect may have tattoos on his left or on both forearms.
