STAMFORD — A bullet — which police believe came from a gun fired on Connecticut Avenue Thursday — was found embedded in the bedroom wall of a nearby residence, police said.

A city resident found what she thought to be a bullet hole in an exterior wall of her home Friday morning. Stamford police Capt. Richard Conklin said investigators found the slug in an interior wall — it had passed through a pillow on its way through the room.

Officers from the Identification Unit extracted the bullet and held it for evidence. Police believe it came from a gun they discovered near the scene of a shooting the day before.

Conklin said shots were reported shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday on Connecticut Avenue, near the corner of Rockfield Drive. Two men were seen sprinting from the scene. No one has been reported injured as a result of the gunplay.

Officers flooded the area, but no arrests were made. Conklin said two police dogs, Bram and Pyro, found a discarded sweatshirt and ski mask wrapped around a .38 caliber Taurus revolver. Because of where the gun was found, police believe it was used in the shooting.

Although two shots were reported by one witness, police only found physical evidence of one. Conklin said that the second shot heard could have been an echo or some other loud sound, or a second gun might have been involved.

Police ran the serial number and discovered that the revolver had been stolen during a residential burglary in Naugatuck in 2014
