1 dead, 8 injured in Hartford shootings

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Two separate shootings in Hartford's North End late Monday and early Tuesday killed a man and wounded eight other people, city police said.

Three people were wounded by gunfire in the first shooting shortly after 10:30 p.m., Lt. Paul Cicero said. Two victims were in surgery early Tuesday morning and another had a non-life-threatening injury, he said.

A few hours later, six people were shot during a large gathering at a warehouse. One of the victims, an adult male, was pronounced dead at about 2 a.m. Tuesday, Cicero said. Dozens of people were at the scene, he said.

Police are investigating whether the shootings were related. Officials did not disclose the victims' names or possible motives.

The gun violence followed three double shootings in Connecticut last weekend.

A woman and man died after a shooting during a large gathering in a commuter parking lot in Manchester early Sunday morning. Two people were injured by gunfire at another large gathering in New London early Sunday, and two more were wounded in a shooting in Bridgeport late Saturday night.
