After firing at possible home invaders: Local man arrested on gun charges

Police are investigating a reported home invasion on last evening that ultimately led to the arrest of the Shelton Road homeowner after he allegedly fired a gun out his window just after midnight Friday.

Ismail Mamudovski

At approximately 8:25 p.m. on Thursday, July 12, Monroe police received a call from a Shelton Road (Route 110) resident reporting that his neighbor — later identified as 77-year-old Ismail Mamudovski — had banged on his door stating that moments earlier at two least people forced their way into his home when he opened the back door.

Police said Mamudovski was assaulted by the intruders, who he claimed demanded money. While the intruders began to search the home, police said Mamudovski was able to run from the scene to his neighbor’s house, and that neighbor contacted police.

Mamudovski sustained minor injuries during home invasion and was examined on scene by Monroe Volunteer Emergency Services but declined further treatment or transport to a hospital.

At 12:52 a.m. Friday, Monroe police received a report that Mamudovski had just shot through the window at what he perceived as the intruders returning. When officers responded to the home, police said they verified a shot had been fired from inside the house towards the yard. There was no evidence that anyone had been struck by the bullet.

Because there was a protective order in place due to an unrelated incident prohibiting Mamudovski from possessing a firearm, he was charged with illegal discharge of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a firearm, first-degree reckless endangerment and violation of a protective order.

Mamudovski was detained at Monroe Police Headquarters in lieu of a $100,000 bond for arraignment in state Superior Court ln Bridgeport Friday.

“Monroe detectives continue investigate the original home invasion and the circumstances involved in the shooting incident,” said Monroe Police Capt. Keith White. “At this point, the home invasion does not appear to be a random act of violence.”
