On June 16, 2018, at approximately 5:30pm, The Litchfield Police Department was dispatched to the 200 block of Charles Bancroft Highway for a 17 yr. old male with a gunshot wound. Officers were advised that the victim was shot in the chest by a .22 caliber round and was conscious, alert and stable.
On scene officers discovered that the round was fired from a Chiappa Little Badger 22LR. It was reported to officers that a round was loaded into the firearm and when the barrel was closed, the round was accidentally discharged.
The victim was transported to the hospital for medical treatment and the investigation into the incident continues.
Litchfield Police Association would like to thank everyone that contributed to the fundraiser we had over the weekend. It was an honor to represent the town of Litchfield at this event. We were able to fund our bowling team and also provide a generous donation to the Cops for Kids with Cancer organization.
We would not have been able to do this without the help and support of the great community we work for. A special thanks to Optimum Building Systems, DLB Paving, Tim’s Turf and Landscaping Materials, New England Small Tube Corporation, Passaconaway Country Club, Peace of Mind Home Improvements, Mel’s Funway park, and Mel’s Diner for your contributions to this fundraiser.
