HARTFORD, Conn. — Hartford police are investigating a homicide that happened on Bellevue Street in the city's North End on Friday evening.
This is Hartford's 14th homicide of 2022.
Hartford Lieutenant Aaron Boisvert said they received reports of shots fired at 9:13 p.m. on Friday. A crime unit that was in the area happened to see a driver involved in a crash on Sanford Street and performed CPR on the driver. The driver of the vehicle was the victim of the shooting and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Boisvert said the victim was seated in the vehicle and more than 10 rounds of gunfire came from outside of the vehicle, causing the victim to attempt to drive away and crash.
The victim was identified overnight as Jordan Maddox, 24, of Hartford.
Police believe Maddox was the intended target in this incident. Lt. Boisvert said there was another homicide on this same street earlier this year.
