This occurred about 10 miles away from me. The wife is quickly coming to understand why I asked her to be armed at all times.Norwich, Conn. —
A 49-year-old Norwich resident was shot in the leg last night during a home invasion involving three masked men, Norwich police said.
The incident occurred around midnight when police said they responded to a 911 call from 82 Peck Street for report of a man suffering from a gunshot wound. Arriving police found a man and woman in the upstairs bedroom at the home.
Police said the two were in bed when the three masked men entered the home. At some point during the confrontation, police said one of the suspects shot the man with a handgun.
The man was identified today as 49-year-old Marc F. Tondre. He was taken to The William W. Backus Hospital where he was treated and released for a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
The motive for the robbery appears to be robbery, said Norwich Police Det. Sgt. Chris Ladd. Several items, including cash, were reported missing. Police said they think the suspects fled on foot but may have had a vehicle waiting in the area.
At least two of the men are described as black males, police said. Anyone with information is asked to contact Norwich police at 886-5561, ext. 500.
