Manchester police recover shell casings in gunfire incident on Taylor Street

December 13. 2013 8:48AM

MANCHESTER - Gunshots were fired near Taylor and Somerville Street early Friday morning and while police recovered two spent shell casings, they were unable to find a gun or the person who fired it.

The gunshots were heard about 2 a.m. in the area of 138 Taylor St. and Somerville Street. Several witnesses told police they were startled and awakened by gunshots and one witness said she heard three gunshots and saw a muzzle flash outside her second-floor bedroom window.

Officers eventually spoke with several people on the third floor of an adjacent building on Taylor Street. Among them was Tamesha Clagon, 31, who police arrested on an unrelated electronic bench warrant.

Anyone caught firing a gun within city limits can be charged with felony reckless conduct, police said.

No injuries were reported. The investigation continues.
