A man was found seated in a white sedan, in the driveway of a multi-family house on Thomaston Street in Hartford.  He was shot repeatedly, and he has now died.

Neighbors heard gunfire, and called police shortly after 10 am today.

The man was shot several times, and was taken to the hospital, but he did not survive.

Police say they think the victim was not from the neighborhood, but they are still investigating the details.

Investigators say the shooting was not random.

People who live nearby say the streets next to Keney Park are usually very quiet, although during warm months gunfire is sometimes heard at night in the park.

“It is very scary for someone to get shot in the neighborhood,” said Cassandra Davidson.  I have children and I want my kids to be safe.”

Police could be seen looking at the ground next to the white multi-family house.

Investigators say they are examining the car for evidence.
