This was in Manchester? Where is Falls View Drive? There is a Falls View Road in Vernon I believe. This article leaves me confused as you quote Manchester Police.

Off of Horizon Way. MPD is quoted because it's in Manchester as the article clearly stated. And to answer your follow up question, before you can ask it, Horizon Way is off of Tolland Turnpike.

Thank you for your explaination "reader". I located the relatively new area in Manchester shortly after I posted. If you go back and read the article you will note that the only referrence to Manchester was the quote of the Manchester Police leaving the reader to assume the incident took place in Manchester. Being that I was not familiar with the area mentioned I was seeking more information.
