HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Hartford police said a couple police cruisers were damaged early Tuesday morning during an attempted traffic stop.

They said they were trying to stop a vehicle in the area of Coleman Drive and Flatbush Avenue when the driver hit at least two cruisers. The driver then fled the scene.

Police said none of the officers were injured and the investigation is ongoing.

According to police, the person behind the wheel may be connected to a homicide in the capital city which occurred on Sunday.

That shooting happened Sunday afternoon in the city's North End.  Police identified the victim as 63-year-old Jeffrey Worrell of Hartford. He was shot once in the head and pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital.

The vehicle involved in the shooting was reported stolen last week from a home in Windsor Locks.
