Woman shot in feet by stray bullets in Hamden

HAMDEN  – A young woman was hospitalized this week after stray bullets entered a Dix Street apartment and struck her in both feet.

The woman was in bed around 2 a.m. Friday when she was shot, according to police.

“A 21-year-old woman was lying in bed in her basement apartment when several shots were fired from outside the home,” police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith said in a release Friday.

The woman was visiting the apartment, Smith said. She was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment, he said.

Two officers and a K-9 officer searched the area but did not find anything, Smith said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hamden Police Department’s Detective Division at 203-230-4000.
