HARTFORD, Conn. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Police in Connecticut said two shootings in Hartford killed a toddler and a teenager about a mile apart on Saturday afternoon.
Police said a three-year-old was killed in drive-by shooting and was an unintended target. He was in a car with his siblings, his mother, and the person the shooter intended to hit.
Blocks away, another shooting was reported around the same time. This time, two teenagers were rushed to a local hospital, with one 16-year-old boy eventually dying.
Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin addressed the shootings in a press briefing, and said "for anyone with a heart and a soul... this is a crime that's unfathomable and sickening."
Police said there's no sign the shootings were related.
