    Hartford police have charged a fourth person suspected of involvement in a shooting in May that injured one man and damaged houses and cars early on the morning of Tuesday, May 12. One of the suspects is still at large.

    Police initially arrested two suspected shooters and were looking for a third involved. The investigation revealed a fourth suspected shooter, Glen Asberry, 24, of Hartford, who was also hit with gunfire, police said. Officers arrested Asberry Thursday on multiple charges including attempted assault with a firearm after police obtained a warrant on Sept. 8.

    Police previously arrested Kenneth Jewell, 24, of Hartford, and Shawn Robinson, 24, of East Hartford, on gun and assault charges, but another suspect, Carlton Forbes, 22, of Hartford, remains at large.

    Hartford police said that Forbes should both be considered armed and dangerous because the weapons involved have not been recovered.

    Police received reports of several gunshots coming from the rear of the Ranch House at 3281 Main Street around 12:30 a.m. on May 12 and encountered a chaotic scene.

    A 24-year-old man suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the head and four vehicles, a house and the back of 3281 Main Street were damaged by gunfire.

    Investigators found 29 shell casings from multiple different caliber guns, as well as other ballistic evidence. They initially thought there were three shooters, but have since identified Asberry as a fourth, police said.

    Hartford police charged Asberry with criminal attempt at first-degree assault, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a firearm, unlawful discharge of a firearm and first-degree reckless endangerment. Police apprehended Asberry on Thursday and the court set his cash bond at $75,000.

    Forbes is facing charges of first-degree assault with a firearm, first-degree conspiracy assault, carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a firearm, criminal possession of a firearm and first-degree reckless endangerment. Forbes is aware there is a warrant out for his arrest, but he is still on the run from police, according to the Hartford Police Department. The search for Forbes is ongoing, police said.

    Jewell was previously charged with first-degree assault with a firearm, conspiracy assault in the first degree, carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a firearm, criminal possession of a firearm and first-degree reckless endangerment.

    Robinson was previously charged with first-degree assault with a firearm, first-degree conspiracy assault, carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a firearm, criminal possession of a firearm and first-degree reckless endangerment.

    The case remains under investigation.
