Westport Police Assist in Easton Shooting Incident

UPDATE Westport police officers assisted today at a shooting incident in Easton that left a Norwalk man dead following what police said was an attempt by an officer to serve a search warrant.

None of the three Westport officers providing support to Easton police was injured, according to detectives.

A police officer was struck by a bullet during the incident but escaped serious injury because he was wearing a protective vest, according to the Connecticut Post Web site.

Neighbors said they heard at least four shots fired, the newspaper reported.

In addition to Easton and Westport officers, police from Trumbull, Monroe and Fairfield along with the State Police Major Crime Unit were on the scene of the shooting on Dogwood Drive, a quiet neighborhood not far from the Merritt Parkway, the report said.

The Connecticut Post quoted sources as saying police went to 91 Dogwood Drive to serve a search warrant shortly after 2 p.m. today. Shots were exchanged between police and a man living in the house.

The shooting occurred at the same house where gunshots were fired through the windows on May 7, but no one was hurt in that incident, the report said.

Later, a state police statement said officers from a regional team representing six local police departments, including Westport, were helping Easton officers serve a search warrant when they encountered the homeowner and another person.

The second person was fatally shot by a local police officer after the man “charged the entry team and physically encountered two of the police officers,” said spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance. Specifics of the confrontation, including whether the resident had a weapon, were not disclosed.

Police later identified the dead man as Gonzalo Guizan, 33, of Norwalk.

The state Office of the Chief State’s Medical Examiner is expected to conduct an autopsy Monday to determine the manner and cause of death.

The Connecticut Post reported a 42-year-old man who lived in the home had been arrested in April on drug charges, about a month before someone fired several shotgun rounds through the home’s windows during the attempted drive-by shooting.

Residents of the neighborhood told the newspaper they saw officers arrive in combat gear and force open the door, then heard several shots.
