    A man who died after being shot several times on Park Street in Hartford on Monday night is the fourth homicide victim in the city this year.

    Police have not released the man’s name, but said he’d been shot three times in the chest and the shot spotter detected 11 gunshots. 

    Hartford Police received several 911 calls at 11:09 p.m. from people reporting gunshots and a victim on the 600 block of Park Street.

    When police responded, they found a man on the sidewalk in front of 631 Park St.
