View Comments

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ New Haven police say a man suspected of shooting at city officers last weekend was found at a local hospital being treated for a gunshot wound.

Police tell the New Haven Register that 27-year-old Cadell Harris of New Haven was located Thursday and is under police guard at the hospital.

Police Chief Frank Limon says gunfire erupted in the streets early Sunday morning during a fight that began inside the Static nightclub on Crown Street. He says three officers were shot at, but none was hurt. The club owner denies the fight started there.

Harris faces charges including attempted assault of a police officer and gun crimes.

It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.

Police have beefed up patrols in the entertainment district in response to two killings in the past year and other violence.
