Fatal Shooting at Late-Night Hartford Party Leaves Two Dead, One Injured

Hartford, Connecticut – Two people were killed and another injured in a shooting at a late-night party in Hartford, according to the police. The incident occurred at 641 Garden St. around 5 a.m. on Saturday, after police were alerted to gunshots by a Shotspotter activation.

At the scene, two of the victims were pronounced dead, while the third victim was transported to St. Francis Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Lieutenant Aaron Boisvert, spokesperson for the Hartford Police Department, confirmed these details.

According to Boisvert, the shooting is believed to have stemmed from a fight in the basement of a private residence. “It’s believed there are two different shooters, the first shooter shot dead one of the victims, and the second shooter actually shot dead the suspect involved,” Boisvert stated.

The second shooter remained at the scene and is fully cooperating with the police. The investigation is ongoing, with officers returning to the property with a search warrant to collect evidence. Boisvert also mentioned that it is unclear at this time if there is any camera evidence.

The incident remains an active investigation, as authorities work to gather more information and evidence to piece together what happened at the late-night party in Hartford. Despite the cooperation from one of the shooters, it is still unclear what led to the shooting and the events that transpired at the private residence. More updates will be provided as the investigation unfolds.
