NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

New Haven police are investigating after two men were shot Sunday afternoon.

Police were called to Derby Avenue, at Chapel Street, for the reports of a shooting.

The victim was identified as 28-year-old Taevon Alston, of West Haven. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Eyewitnesses said they saw a masked man, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, get out of a “shiny black car.” That man reportedly had a gun, the eyewitness said.

Police said a few minutes later, another victim, identified as 33-year-old Harold Herring, walked into the hospital with a gunshot wound.

Herring is in critical but stable condition.

Police said both shootings appear to be related and from the same scene.

Anyone with information should contact police at 203-946-6304.
