    Police in New Haven had the area of Dixwell Avenue and Division Street taped off while they investigated a shooting that involved an 11-year-old boy.

    Two people broke into a Trinity College dean’s house while he home early on Friday morning and took his car keys and several other items.

    Frederick Alford, the dean of students, was in his Vernon Street, Hartford home when he heard a noise at 2:30 a.m.

    Intruders had climbed through a window after pulling out an air conditioning unit, according to Trinity College campus police. The dean went to investigate and found a man in his on-campus house. Alford screamed and the man fled, police said. Then Alford saw the second person leave the house,

    The burglars stole Alford’s car keys and his car, which held golf clubs. They also stole a television and a laptop.

    Alford  called campus security, which is located right across from his house.

    Alford was the only person at home when the burglary happened and no one was injured.
