NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP)/CBS Connecticut – Two women and a child have been shot in a domestic dispute in New Britain that forced the lockdowns of a school and a hospital emergency department.  New Britain Police say all of the victims are expected to survive.

A fourth child was found in the home, but was not injured.

Police are looking for 36-year-old Jermaine Scott of New Britain.  Scott lives on the same road where the shooting took place, but police did not give his address.

New Britain Police have not yet found the gun used in the shooting.  They say Scott has a criminal history that includes violence, and he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police say one of the victims had a domestic relationship with Scott.

According to judicial records, Scott had been scheduled to appear in court in Middletown hours after the shooting, on motor vehicle charges.  He was accused of driving an unregistered vehicle with a suspended license while using a cell phone.

A nearby elementary school and the ER at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford were locked down.

Authorities say the suspect’s cellphone pinged a tower near the hospital.

Police were called to a home near the Newington line at about 7 a.m.

Officials say they have responded to a second crime scene several blocks away, where they located a vehicle that may have been used in the attacker’s getaway.

Police say Scott also got on a CT Fastrak bus.

Police say they are looking for 36-year-old Jermaine Tywayne Scott in connection with the shooting.
