HARTFORD —  Four teens are in police custody after a shooting and foot chase near the State Capitol Building.

Police said that they were alerted by ShotSpotter and there were officers already close by the area. 

“We’ve been receiving a spike in shots fired and incidents occuring specifically in the frog hollow neighborhood,” Lt. Paul Cicero said. 

The suspects were seen in a stolen car near the capitol building. The car was said to be stolen out of Coventry.

Four people got out of the car and ran from police.

Police said that all “four juveniles and two guns were recovered.” Both guns seized by police were confirmed stolen.

One of the suspects was arrested three weeks earlier in stolen car. This mark’s the suspects fifth stolen car arrest in Hartford alone.

“It’s discouraging. It’s difficult with the hundreds of hours that it takes for the police officers and detectives to deal with these cases, to investigate these cases from beginning to end specifically a juvenile,” Cicero said. 

No one was injured in the shooting.
