HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - A teen has died as a result of a quadruple shooting in Hartford that happened on Sunday, officials said.

The victim was identified as 17-year-old Usher Hanns.

Lt. Paul Cicero of the Hartford Police Department told Channel 3 that the shooting took place on Edgewood Street just before 10 p.m.

Three other people were injured during the shooting.

Police said they were alerted to the call after a Shot Spotter system activation near a home. The system detected 12 rounds fired.

Shortly after the shooting, Cicero said a 29-year-old man was struck by gunfire in the leg, a 26-year-old man was struck in the ankle, a 17-year-old man was hit in the hand, and another man whose age was not released suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

Hanns was died of his wounds on Wednesday evening, police revealed.

Connecticut Natural Gas responded to the scene as well. According to police, the gunfire ruptured a gas line. 

Neighbors told Channel 3 they are frustrated by the level of violence in the city.

There's no word on a suspect.

It's also unclear if all four victims were shot by one suspect or if there was a shootout.
