HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – A man died in the hospital after a shooting in Hartford.

Police say officers responded to Zion Street around 11:45 a.m. for a Shot Spotter activation.

A male was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

The victim has been identified as Guillermo Gonzalez, 59, of Hartford.

Police say they are now investigating a homicide.

“At this point in the investigation, it appears that the shots came from a passing vehicle,” Hartford police said.

Police say Gonzalez was an innocent bystander.

“From video we did pull already, it appears we had a vehicle chasing another vehicle, letting rounds go. So we don’t think our victim had anything to do with it. He was out there, he lived in the area so very unfortunate,” said Lt. Aaron Boisvert with Hartford police.

The shooting is under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hartford police.
