WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) – A 14-year-old was taken to the hospital on Tuesday with gunshot wounds.
Police said they were called to Congress Avenue early Tuesday afternoon for the report of a shooting.
The male teen was taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds to his left hand and thigh area. He's in stable condition.
An investigation showed that this appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot incident.
The investigation is ongoing.
“This incident is just an example of another juvenile who was familiar to the Waterbury Police Department due to a history of violent criminal activity and out on a release from court custody, further engaging in criminal activity, which endangered himself and the Waterbury community," said Waterbury Police Chief Fernando Spagnolo.
This comes less than a month after another 14-year-old was shot while inside a home in Waterbury.
A 14-year-old boy was shot in the back overnight while inside a home in Waterbury.
Last week, another 14-year-old, who was from Hamden, died after being shot. He had been brought to a hospital in Waterbury, but it is not believed the shooting happened in the city.
A 14-year-old boy died after being shot in the head, family members said earlier this week.
