The Hartford Police Department is investigating a shooting that left a 33-year-old Hartford man dead and sent three other people to the hospital on Monday night.

Hartford Police Lt. Aaron Boisvert said officers were called to the intersection of Bedford Street and Mather Street shortly after 7 p.m. after multiple rounds activated ShotSpotter.

Police said it appeared to be a drive-by shooting with multiple shooters all inside of the car.

“The group is congregated. The vehicle comes up, slows, stops at some point, multiple people get out and begin firing," Boisvert said.

One man was found unresponsive and he died at the hospital. Police have identified him as Jermaine Davis, 33, of Hartford.

Two other male victims were found in the area and were transported to a hospital to be treated for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police said the fourth victim walked into St. Francis Hospital moments after.

All of the victims were males. Police believe this was a targeted shooting but do not know the cause or the relationship of the people involved.

"We can say confidently at this point, this group of individuals was definitely targeted or at least somebody within that group of individuals. This was again, this was meant for somebody in particular,” Boisvert added.

The shooting remains under investigation.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hartford Police Department Tip Line at 860-722-TIPS (8477).
