HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra plans to meet with the city’s acting police chief to discuss a weekend of violence in which 10 people were shot and two of them killed.

Police say a 16-year-old from Windsor and a 24-year-old Hartford man were found shot to death Saturday in separate incidents.

The Hartford Courant reports  the teenager was found unresponsive in the driveway of a multifamily home on Thomaston Street at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

Twenty-four-year-old Michael Bailey Jr. of Bloomfield was found in a parking lot on Ashley Street with multiple gunshot wounds just after 2 a.m. Saturday. Eight people were wounded in other shootings.

Segarra says he’s hoping it was just a bad weekend.
