SOUTH WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) - A man accused of shooting a coworker and wounding another during a workplace shooting in South Windsor faced a judge in Massachusetts and was officially charged in Connecticut on Wednesday.

The suspect, 33-year-old Alan Rosario of Springfield, MA, waived extradition during the hearing.

Rosario was then brought back to Connecticut.

South Windsor police said they charged him with second-degree assault with a firearm, first-degree threatening, first-degree reckless endangerment, illegal discharge of a firearm and third-degree assault. He was held on a $250,000 bond.

He could face a just again Wednesday or Thursday.

Police said Rosario targeted one person in the shooting and a second victim was hit by shrapnel. The injuries were reportedly non-life-threatening.

The shooting happened 105 Edwin Rd., which is a property with a number of businesses.

"It is an industrial type condo," said Sgt. Mark Cleverdon, South Windsor police. "A lot of businesses down there. No name fronts, but there was a business down there and they were both employees at one of the businesses down there."

It happened in an outside area by a garage bay and was preceded by some kind of argument. 

"It's a logistical company," Cleverdon said. "I believe they do outsourcing for Fedex and some other companies. But they are both employed by that agency."

Police were trying to determine the number of shots that were fired.

The intended target was hit in the leg. The other person was hit with fragments and suffered injuries to an eye.

The victims were taken to a hospital and have since been released.

After the shots were fired, police said the suspect fled towards Massachusetts in a dark-colored GMC Acadia.

They said the suspect was stopped across the state line on I-91 north by exit 49 in Longmeadow, MA.

Rosario was being held in Massachusetts as a fugitive from justice.

Enfield police said they initially spotted the vehicle, but Massachusetts State Police helped make the arrest.

A .357 magnum was recovered, according to South Windsor police.

There's no word on a motive.

Anyone with information is asked to contact South Windsor police.
