NEW HAVEN (AP) — Authorities say two police officers have been shot in Connecticut.

New Haven police Officer David Hartman, a spokesman for the department, says two officers have been shot Saturday in an apparent domestic shooting that left a female victim critically injured.

Hartman says the officers, identified as Eric Pesino and Scott Shumway, sustained injuries to the arm that aren’t considered life-threatening.

Hartman says officers responded to reports of gunfire. When they arrived, the victim had run from the home to a neighbor’s house after being shot by a relative who authorities believe is her husband. She was taken to a hospital.

Police say the suspect allegedly shot the two officers when they tried to find him.

SWAT teams responded.
