HAMDEN, CT (WFSB) - Hamden's incumbent mayor had his work cut out for him during Tuesday's primary election.
Mayor Curt Leng squared off against challenger Lauren Garrett for the Democratic nod.
Almost two hours after the polls closed, results showed Leng won the Hamden mayoral primary over Garrett.
One issue expected to be at the center of the race is the handling of an officer-involved shooting that made national headlines.
The shooting, which happened last spring, involved a Hamden officer and a Yale University officer, opening fire on two people they thought were driving in a vehicle that was involved in an armed robbery. The shooting happened in New Haven.
Body cam footage appeared to show that the people in the vehicle were unarmed.
Protestors have been calling for both officers to lose their jobs.
Polls opened at 6 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
