Husband Arrested in Wake of Grumman Ave. Shooting

Charles Garcia was arrested on a warrant on New Year's Eve.

A 47-year-old man was charged with assault in the first degree and unlawful restraint in the first degree following an investigation into a shooting incident which occurred at a Grumman Avenue residence in November 2012. 

Charles Garcia, who lives at 35 Grumman Avenue, was held on $100,000 bond after police determined he broke the law following a domestic altercation with his 39-year-old wife during which a rifle was discharged. Garcia and his wife both sustained injuries to their faces from the single gunshot fired.

The arrest was made on Monday, Dec. 31 at 9 a.m. According to The Wilton Bulletin, Garcia was released from Yale-New Haven Hospital earlier that day.

While his wife remained conscious following the shooting and contacted police from a neighbor's residence, Garcia suffered "life-threatening injuries," police said.

Gary Lorentson, the couple's landlord, said Garcia and his wife—along with their two children—have lived at the house since December 2010. He

EMR, that was my first gut reaction too--but why not show what happens when a gun is shot and the effect it has? Without any of the debate of "innocent until convicted," "we don't know what really happened," or issues of domestic violence, mental illness, gun rights, etc. the fact is someone was shot, it's not a cartoon or a movie--this is what the truth is.
