Bullet just misses teen's head in Manchester gun incident


This photo is from Manchester's online assessors' database. The 382 Cedar St. building, located at the northwest corner of Cedar and Maple streets, was the site of a shooting Monday night. No one was injured in the incident, the third shooting in nine days on a .7-mile stretch of Maple Street. 

MANCHESTER — A man with a gun chased two teens into a Cedar Street apartment building, firing a shot that hit an apartment door next to a 17-year-old's head.

No one was injured in the incident at about 10:25 p.m. at 382 Cedar St., an eight-unit apartment building at the northwest corner of Maple and Cedar streets.

It is the third shooting in nine days along a .7-mile stretch of Maple Street.

Police said a 17-year-old boy, who was not identified in a news release, told investigators someone shot at him and his two friends. The teen had minor cuts on his face that did not require medical treatment.

He told officer Ryan Heile that he and two friends were standing outside the apartment building when three men, all in their late teens or early 20s, got out of a car and approached them.

The teen noticed one of the men had a gun in his waistband, and the teen and one of his friends ran inside the apartment building. The other friend ran away from the building.

The teen said as he started to close the door behind him, he heard a shot. A bullet hit the door next to his head, causing debris to hit his face, cutting him.

Police recovered a .22 caliber casing at the scene.

The shooter is described as a black man, about 6-foot-2 with light skin, bad acne and a thin build. He wore white shorts and a grey hooded top with black sneakers and white socks pulled up high.

He is believed to be associated with a newer, silver Chevy Impala with dark tinted windows.

June 8, Tyrell Mitchell, 22, of 235 Lowell St. was shot in the leg near N&N Express Convenience at Lowell and Maple streets.

Three days later, Edwin Soto, 23, was shot while he was in the rear of 461 Maple St., just north of Amherst Street.

Police have not said if any of the shootings are connected. No one has been arrested in any of the incidents.
