HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Hartford police are investigating the killing of a man who was shot in the head in the city’s first homicide of the year.

Officers were called to a North End neighborhood at about 10 p.m. Wednesday on reports of gunshots and found the victim in a parking lot near The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc.

Paramedics took him to St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Police didn’t release the man’s name or information about possible suspects and a motive.

Hartford saw 23 homicides last year, one more than the previous year.
