4 Shot In 2 Incidents

Shootings claimed victims on both the east and west sides of town Monday evening.

Here’s what happened, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman:

Three men were shot, two of them critically, in a barrage of gunfire that “spanned the approximate distance of a city block” of Quinnipiac Avenue near Eastern Street. The shootings took place around 10 p.m. A 23-year-old man “suffered a graze wound to his right hand, a non-life threatening
injury.” A 20-year-old “was shot in the abdomen,” a 21-year-old “in the thigh and wrist.” The latter two are listed in “critical but stable condition.” All three are in the hospital. Police did not have any motives and suspects to report Monday evening.

Nor did police report having a suspect in the other shooting, which occurred around 6 p.m. at Dixwell Avenue and Ivy Street. A 19-year-old man was shot there in his lower back. He was reported “conscious and alert” and “speaking with officers” at the scene before being taken by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hospital.

I was hoping to read something regarding gun shots I heard last night (Monday) around 11:30pm but none of these incidents seem to coincide time wise. Did anyone else happen to hear five shots somewhere possibly north of Westville near Hamden??
