3 People Hospitalized After Shooting Outside Bar

HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) — Three people were taken to the hospital after police say they were shot in the legs outside of a Connecticut bar.

Police say it happened around 1:30 a.m. Saturday at the Highwood Bar and Grill in Hamden.

Responding officers located a man and two women inside the bar suffering from gunshot wounds to the legs. They were taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Police haven’t released their names.

Police say they later learned there was a fourth victim who was grazed by a bullet but left the bar before officers arrived.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Hamden police.
