Police investigate fatal shooting in New Haven



NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police in New Haven are investigating a late night shooting that left a man dead.

Capt. Anthony Duff says officers responded to the area of Congress Avenue and Redfield Street at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday in responder to an alert from ShotSpotter, the city’s automated gunfire detection system.

The victim was found in the street. He was taken by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he was pronounced dead. No name was released and there was no word on arrests.

The shooting occurred in the same area as a non-fatal shooting on Monday. In that case, a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm.

Police say it’s unclear if the shootings are connected.
