Hartford – Injuries In Shooting Incident
A person was injured in a shooting incident in Hartford Monday afternoon.
Gunfire was reported at the intersection of Capen and Garden Streets, prompting authorities to send officers to the area. Initial reports suggest a person was shot in the leg by still-unidentified assailants. The victim was quickly tended to by medical personnel and is expected to recover. No word yet on the number of assailants or the circumstances that led to the shooting. The crime scene was secured and cleared by Monday evening, but the case is still under investigation. Authorities are asking witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
Parties exhibiting reckless or negligent behavior can cause more harm if not apprehended promptly. It’s in these scenarios where resolving cases will depend on witness reports. It goes without saying, suspects have to be apprehended. That said, injuries caused by negligent behavior can enable victims to explore and pursue claims against culprits.
