PD: Man shot in apartment building in Hartford

Posted: Updated:

A 25-year-old man suffered non-life-threatening injuries after police said he was shot at an apartment on Main Street in Hartford on Saturday evening. 

The shooting happened in the area of 2006 Main St. just before 8 p.m. after police said someone walked into an apartment building and started shooting. 

"The officers heard seven to eight shots across the street and located a single male victim suffering at the time we believed was three gunshot wounds," said Sergeant Paul Cicero. 

Police said the victim, Windsor resident Tequan Vail, was taken by a "private vehicle" to Saint Francis Hospital.  At last check, Vail, who was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, was in stable condition, police said. 

This shooting happened less than 24 hours after the 18th homicide this year in the capital city. 

"Enough is enough, grab your kids," said Lacrisha Williams. 

Williams has family members who live in the building and she raises her kids right down the street. She said this summer's violence has made her ashamed and afraid to live in Hartford. 

"My biggest struggle is raising my kids in this. It's really, really hard and I'm so scared and nervous," Williams said. 

Neighbors told Eyewitness News that the victim was fighting with someone outside shortly before the shooting, but police did not say if that played a role in the violence.

Connecticut State Police was also called to the scene. 

No arrests have been made in the case. Police have not released any suspect descriptions at this time. Anyone with any information about the shooting is asked to call police at 860-757-4000 or leave anonymous tips by clicking here.
