Waterbury police officers scour a front lawn on Hillside Avenue last night in search of bullet casings after a shooting incident around 7:30 pm.

The perimeter of the crime scene was extended to keep curious by-standers, and the media, from impeding the search for evidence.

The entire intersection of Willow Street and Hillside Avenue was aglow for several hours as the Waterbury PD secured the crime scene, processed evidence and interviewed eye-witnesses.
