HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A man is dead after police said he was shot on Saturday afternoon in Hartford.

Deputy Chief of Police Brian Foley told Channel 3 that a man was shot in the area of 41 Henry Street just after noon.

Police said a large fight in the street may have prompted a suspect to shoot a gun at the victim who was running toward a house. Police said the unidentified victim ran into the house and collapsed inside. 

Foley said the man was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Police are urging those with information on the fight, the suspects, or the victim to contact the Hartford Police Department.
