At approximately 1:10 a.m. this morning, officers were dispatched to Rumba Café Bar and Lounge, 679 Main Street for a report of gun shots in the area.

After reviewing video surveillance footage, the East Haven Police Department Investigative Services Division determined that a white or Hispanic male believed to be in his 20s wearing a red backwards hat, black T-shirt, and dark-colored jeans entered a newer model blue vehicle. He is then seen returning to the rear parking lot of Rumba in possession of multiple firearms before firing multiple shots.

Patrons in the rear parking lot were observed fleeing and running for cover. One of the vehicles struck by gunfire was occupied by two individuals. Neither occupant was injured.

Upon officer’s initial arrival, several vehicles in the parking lot were discovered to have been struck by gunfire. McDonalds Resturant, which is adjacent to the parking lot the incident occurred in was also struck by gunfire. No victims were located at the time of the incident.

The East Haven Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the pictured individual and/or the pictured vehicle. All information obtained will remain anonymous. Anyone with any information related to this incident is asked to contact Detective Joe Carangelo jcarangelo@easthavenpolice.com or 203-468-3827.
