Police: Man in his 20s critically wounded in Hartford shooting

HARTFORD — Police say they are investigating a shooting near the West Hartford line that left a man in critical condition early Tuesday.

Officers were called around 1:50 a.m. to the 1000 block of Capitol Avenue after the city's ShotSpotter system registered gunfire, Hartford Police Lt. Aaron Boisvert said.

At the scene, police found a man in his 20s "suffering from a gunshot wound," Boisvert said. The shooting happened outside a building at the intersection with James Street.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, he said.

Police don't have a motive for the shooting, Boisvert said. The department's major crimes and crime scene divisions are investigating.
