ANSONIA - Police are interviewing two suspects in connection with the shooting of a "repo man" this afternoon on Reichelt Terrace.
A man with York Towing of New Haven who was sent to repossess a vehicle at 4 Reichelt Terrace was shot at about 1 p.m., according to police spokesman Lt. Andrew Cota. The victim told police a man came out of the house, argued with him over whether he had the right to take his car, then assaulted and shot him.
The victim sustained a non-life threatening wound to his knee, authorities said. He was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment, Cota said.
Police now have a husband and wife in custody and are trying to determine which one pulled the trigger.
“The husband says he did it. The wife says she did it,” Cota said.
No charges have been filed yet.
Police aren’t releasing the victim’s identity yet. Cota said the man is in his 30s.
