    Gunshots rang out during a tribute for a homicide victim in Norwalk on Wednesday night and police are investigating.

    Officers responded to the Day Street side of the Washington Village Housing Complex just at 9:18 p.m. on Wednesday to investigate reports of gunshots and found tribute candles and a large group of people walking away from the area.

    As officers interviewed the group, detectives determined that the group had gathered in the area to pay tribute to a homicide victim, police said.

    Officers found two handguns and two shell casings in the road and said this appears to be isolated and no individuals were targeted.
