South Windsor Police investigating shooting

Police say a gunshot victim was found with non-life-threatening injuries.

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. — Police are currently investigating a shooting Sunday night in South Windsor. 

Officials told FOX61 the shooting took place on Route 5's intersection near Strong Road just before 6 pm. A gunshot victim was found in East Windsor and taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police are looking for a vehicle involved in the shooting that is believed to be a dark-colored four-door sedan with New York license plates.

Police said, "On October 25, 2020, at approximately 1733 hours, a vehicle leaving a car show at 310 Nutmeg Road South was stopped in the left turn lane on the Northbound side of John Fitch Boulevard at its intersection with Strong Road. The vehicle was a 1987 Suzuki Samurai, color red. As the Suzuki was stopped at the light, a charcoal gray Mercedes (4-door with dark tints) with a yellow license plate (possibly New York) pulled up along the passenger side of the Suzuki, and a back seat passenger in the Mercedes started firing a hand gun. The Suzuki was struck twice and a single passenger in the vehicle was struck by gunfire. The Mercedes took off northbound on Rte. 5. The shooter was only described as a light skinned black or hispanic male."

Route 5 and Strong Road  were closed for several hours for the investigation.
