Hartford – Senior Pedestrian Killed By Shooting Suspects

A 71-year-old pedestrian was hit and killed by escaping assailants in Hartford late yesterday afternoon.

Authorities responded to the intersection of Garden and Westland Streets after receiving ShotSpotter notifications from the area. According to officials, a senior pedestrian was hit and killed by a Kia SUV operated by suspects reportedly attempting to flee the area following a shootout between two groups of armed individuals. Authorities quickly cordoned off the area and have started investigating the incident. No word yet on the identities of anyone at the scene when the fatal hit occurred. This post will be updated as soon as officials release more info.

Based on evidence already available in this case, the victim was not involved in any of the events preceding the fatal pedestrian hit. Suffice it to say, authorities will diligently work on this case until responsible parties have been brought to justice. It’s also important to point out that the family of the victim may have legal avenues at their disposal to help them cope and find closure. Legal experts can study these examples of negligent or reckless behavior and create a suitable course of action for victims or next of kin.
