HAMDEN, Conn. — Police in Hamden are investigating two shootings that took place about a mile and 30 minutes apart that left two people injured. 

Around 10 p.m. police said shots were fired at a home in the area of Butler and Goodrich Streets. The bullet traveled through the wall of the home and struck a woman inside. It does not appear that she was the intended target of the shooting. She was treated on scene and taken to Yale New Haven Hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder.

About 30 minutes later and a mile away, police said they were called to Warner Street on a reported shooting. Officers located a 39-year-old male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The man was treated on scene and taken to Yale New Haven Hospital with critical injuries.
