Hartford shooting task force to announce results

Posted: Updated:

Law enforcement officials will be announcing the accomplishments of an anti-gun violence task force that's been working in Hartford for the past year.
    
Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra, Police Chief James Rovella, prosecutors and police officers are set to release the results of the Shooting Task Force's first-year of work on Tuesday.
    
The task force has been the latest effort to reduce violence in the capital city. Police department data show there were 27 murders in the city last year and a dozen so far this year. Sixty-nine people have been shot in Hartford this year, down from 89 at the same time last year.
    
City police have been working with prosecutors, state police, officers from surrounding towns, prison officials and parole officials to reduce gun violence.
