Officials in Stamford, Connecticut are calling a downtown shooting that left five injured this past weekend ‘random,’ but pledge more police protection in the future. 

Governor Dannel Malloy announced what he called a dramatic turnaround at the Connecticut state police crime lab on Wednesday. He says a national accreditation board has found compliance at the Meriden lab in every category and no negative findings.

Attorneys for a former teacher at Stamford’s Yerwood Center and the center itself appeared in Stamford Superior Court Monday. Bonnie Campbell of Stamford charges the center is seeking to illegally shut down federally-funded programs. 

Overall crime rates in Connecticut are down to a level last seen in 1968. Governor Dannel Malloy’s criminal justice advisor announced this to state lawmakers in Hartford on Friday.
