TRUMBULL, Conn. — Trumbull police were investigating after shots were fired at a group of youths from Bridgeport in a residential neighborhood in the Nichols section of town on Halloween night.

Numerous callers reported hearing shots fired at about 9 p.m. Tuesday, Trumbull police said.

Responding officers found several handgun bullet casings near the intersection of Leffert Road and Foster Avenue in Trumbull, police said.

Officers also saw a group of youths running toward Unity Road, police said. The group, which had come to the area from Bridgeport, reported that someone was shooting a gun nearby on Foster Avenue, police said.

No injuries were reported, and no arrests were made, police said.

As officers interviewed more residents and witnesses, they "came to believe that a dispute occurred between an unidentified resident and the youths," police said.

A gun may have been fired "to scare the youths," police said.

Police said they suspected that "the youths might have been tampering with vehicles parked in the area" just before the gunshots were reported.

Police detectives continued to investigate on Wednesday morning, interviewing residents and other witnesses in the area, as well as collecting additional evidence that was found in the daylight.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Trumbull police at 203-261-3665 or through the anonymous tipline at Trumbull-ct.gov/police .
