Police said three people have been shot Wednesday morning in New Britain, Conn., and the shooter is still at large.
Police said the shooting happened at a single-family home near Chamberlain Elementary school, just before 7 a.m.
Police found two women and a 12-year-old boy suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Another child was located in the home uninjured, police said. The victims were taken to area trauma centers for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, according to police.
Police said this wasn't a random incident and that it appears that the suspect and the victims have a domestic relationship. Scott was believed to have lived at the Newington Avenue address.
Superintendent of New Britain schools confirmed that the boy attends public schools. She said the boy and the suspect got into an argument prior to the shooting.
She said absentee rates were up slightly Wednesday and some families took their students home, but "at no time were our students in any danger whatsoever."
