Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police believe someone is randomly shooting people in Hartford with BBs or pellets.

They said the first call came from a woman on Franklin Avenue around 4:15 p.m. on Monday.

The victim reported that she heard a sound similar to a BB or airsoft gun. She said she experienced pain in her back and thought she was hit.

She declined medical attention and could not provide a description of the suspect.

A short time later, police said they received another call about a man who was admitted to St. Francis Hospital.

He also complained he was shot and hospital staff said it was not by a bullet.

Police determined it happened near the same Franklin Avenue spot where the woman said she was hit.

The man told police he was shot by someone in a gray Volkswagen.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hartford Police Department.
