(yeah, as long as we understand, 'it' was from HARTFORD and NOT WEST hartford. we can all sleep more comfortably now)
not only do i live within walking distance of the incident, there are TONS OF KIDS who live in that area. gunshots entered homes. we've very lucky no one else was hit. it appears buildings were, but not people other than the two original men.
at any rate, all satire aside, i am so very sorry someone has been murdered in my town (or anywhere for that matter). i very much want the shooters caught, tried and brought to justice.
Victim ID'd in West Hartford Shooting
The Hartford Courant
WEST HARTFORD — - The shooting that killed Christian Torres, injured a second man and put bullet holes in Park Road businesses probably started across the city line, police said today.
"Some of the facts of the investigation lead us to believe that this incident began in Hartford," West Hartford Officer Rob Riccobon said at a press conference.
Riccobon gave very little information about the details of the investigation or about the shooting victims. But he said the shooting clearly was not random; it appears Torres and the other injured man were targeted.
Police did not identify the man who survived. He was treated at an area hospital and discharged with no permanent injuries, Riccobon said.
