NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ New Haven police responded to a report of gunshots and found a man’s body in the city’s Newhallville section.

Police say the body of a black man in his 30s was found in front of a house on Bassett Street just before 3 a.m. on Monday.

His identity has not been released, and police are not saying if he was shot to death.

WTNH-TV reports police also were called to a scene just a few blocks away, where a woman reported she had been pistol whipped in her car.

It’s not clear if the two incidents are related.
