Danbury Surveillance Video Shows Man Firing a Gun Outside a City Nightclub
An investigation is underway in the Hat City regarding an incident in which security camera footage shows what appears to be a number of gunshots fired following a recent altercation
In the video, several men appear to get ready to fight when a man in a black hoodie and camouflage pants pulls a gun from his waist area and fires two shots in the air. Soon after the shots are fired, the video cuts off. The gun was fired at the 1:23 mark of the video.
The video itself is labeled "12:39 AM...Oct 3rd...Ives Street, Danbury..." There is no additional detailed description attached to it.
I reached out to Al Robinson of "ctblogger" and asked what he could tell me about the video, this was via text, and he said the following:
"Video is from Kevin Paige's place (Hat City Ale House)."
"Security camera from the back of his place."
"The timestamp is on the video....."
"I don't know the name of the nightclub in that corner."
We reviewed images from an Ives Street perspective on Google Instant Street View to get a better idea of what we were looking at.
The green awning on the right would be the rear of Hat City Ale House, the blue awning on the left is the rear of Zona Azul Bar & Lounge. This is the picture zoomed in.
When zoomed you can make out the Hat City Ale House and Zona Azul logos on their respective doors and see the utility box that appears in the video
A gun incident was mentioned briefly at last night's (10/5/21) Danbury City Council meeting and Danbury Police Chief Patrick Ridenhour did not say much other than it's an active investigation. The brief exchange about the incident begins around the 34:00 mark.
As I-95 gets more information we will make it available to you.
UPDATE: (10/6/21) 2:16 PM - I spoke with Danbury Mayor Joe Cavo and asked for comment on the incident, Cavo replied:
"They're is not much I can say right now, I know it's an active investigation and the police hope to identify the suspect."
