HARTFORD, Conn. – Hartford police say a 21-year-old man died and six people were injured, including two children, in shootings near a West Indian pride festival Saturday night.
Police Chief Daryl Roberts said three suspects were taken into custody and three guns were recovered. He said the shootings may have been gang-related, and that innocent bystanders from the West Indian festival may have been caught in the middle.
The identity of the man who died was not released early Sunday.
Roberts said two of the shooting victims were under 10 years old, and one was listed in critical condition, Roberts said. The other is expected to recover.
He said the other four victims ranged from 15 to 17 years old, and suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
