CT couple rattled after shots fired at their home

March 15, 2019

A Manchester couple is concerned about staying in their own home after their house was shot up Wednesday night, according to WFSB TV.

Andrew Iriondo and Alexa Mouttas woke up Thursday morning to find that someone had fired six shots into their Oxford Street home in a quiet neighborhood in Manchester, WFSB said.

The bullets went through the front of the house, dining room, a second wall, and the kitchen before finally getting lodged in the back wall of the house, the couple said

“I’m very scared and very shaken up over it. I can’t imagine who or what the motive would be for something like this,” Mouttas told WFSB.

The couple said they have never been in trouble and don’t have any known enemies. It’s possible the incident is a case of mistaken identity but it’s left them fearful of being in their own home, they said.

Manchester police are looking at surveillance videos farther up the road but none of their neighbors have cameras, the couple said.

They are now considering leaving, Mouttas said.

“I’m probably never going to be able to be comfortable here and the fact that I feel like I’ve lost everything I’ve worked hard for,” Mouttas said.
