The gunshots may have been fired at another motor vehicle. The suspect, Frantz Maignan, a 34-year-old Bridgeport man, was quickly identified in the investigation by the Darien police Detective Bureau, and on Tuesday, Aug. 18, police applied for an arrest warrant, which was granted.

The next day, Stratford police took Maignan into custody and turned him over to Darien police.

Maignan, of North Summerfield St. in Bridgeport, is charged with criminal use of a firearm, criminal possession of a firearm, reckless endangerment and seven counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm.

The judge set his bond at $150,000, and he appeared Thursday in state Superior Court in Stamford. The Connecticut Judicial Branch website, as of early Friday afternoon, has no information on his court case.
