A single arrest has been made in the Tufano Amusements accidental shooting incident, which occurred in April, and the case is now closed, officials stated this week.
On Tuesday afternoon, Sean Cazimovski, 24, of Florida, turned himself into the Cheshire Police Department for his involvement in the shooting, which occurred on April 20. Cazimovski was charged with first degree reckless endangerment and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
The shooting occurred shortly after 1 a.m. at 1695 Reinhard Road, the headquarters for Tufano Amusements. Workers for the carnival ride rental company live nearby in mobile homes, although, Police state that Cazimovski is not a Tufano employee.
The Cheshire Police Department was contacted by Meriden Police about the early morning shooting. The victim, a Tufano employee, suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest and was driven to MidState Medical Center. Staff there notified Meriden police of the shooting, and when it was learned the incident happened in Cheshire, local officers were made aware of the situation.
Apparently a group of men, who police said are all around the same age, were drinking and handling guns when the shooting took place. Police said everyone cooperated with the investigation. No more arrests are forthcoming, Cheshire police said.
The victim, whose name is not being released, underwent surgery for the injury but has recovered enough to be released from the hospital.
Cazimovski was processed and released on $2,500 bond. He will appear in court on May 23.
