STRATFORD — Shots were fired in town Tuesday afternoon after an altercation, police officials said.

The shots were fired in the area of Lake Street and South Avenue, according to a broadcast on Connecticut State Police radio waves. The BOLO indicated the shooting happened around 3:30 p.m.

Chief Joseph McNeil said there were several shots fired after an altercation between two men on the street and two in a car.

“Allegedly someone said they were shot in the foot but we cannot confirm this and have no victim at this time,” McNeil said, adding, “We do not have anyone in custody at this time. We are continuing to interview witnesses.”

While police investigated the shooting and searched for suspects, at least two Metro-North trains in the area were delayed.

The New Haven Line of Metro-North Railroad was delayed in the area of Stratford and Bridgeport around 4 p.m. because of “police department activity” in the area.

By 4:15 p.m., service had resumed on the New Haven Line. The 4:02 p.m. train from Stratford to Grand Central Terminal (Train 1575) and the 3:58 p.m. train from Bridgeport to New Haven (Train 1536) were each operating 10 to 15 minutes late.
