DANBURY, Conn. — Four teenagers have been charged with shooting a Danbury man in both arms back in September, putting two nearby schools on lockdown and sending the victim to the hospital, police said Friday.

The shooting was reported at 1:20 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, at a home on Church Hill Road, police said. Responding officers found a 20-year-old man with two gunshot wounds from bird-shot style ammo — one in each arm, police said.

He was transported to Danbury Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
