A person was injured during a shooting in New Haven Friday night.

Officers were dispatched to the area of Crown Street and Park Street just after 10 p.m. for a report of a person shot.

Yale University police detectives heard gunfire and notified police dispatch. On-duty Yale officers in plain clothes then found a 29-year-old man holding a gun on Crowd Street, according to officials.

The 17-year-old was pulled into a parked car and driven away, officials said.

Yale detectives later detained the man and notified police dispatch of a gunshot victim leaving the scene in a private car.

The teen was transported by private car to Yale New Haven Hospital for his injuries, according to investigators. They remain hospitalized and in stable condition.

Investigators seized the man's handgun and located a realistic-looking BB gun at the scene, which is believed to belong to the teen.

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 203-946-6304.
