    Hartford police are searching for two brothers wanted for a murder that took place in a school parking lot.

    Kunta Soyini, 34, and his 37-year-old brother, Quan Soyini are accused of killing Chimar Gordon on July 10.

    Gordon was found lying in the parking lot at the Thirman Milner Elementary School around 10:30 a.m. The shooting prompted officials to place the school on lock-in. Summer school was in session at the time of the shooting, but no students or staff witnessed the incident, according to police.

    Homicide detectives were able to identify the Soyini brothers as suspects, but did not say what led them to the pair. Police have obtained arrest warrants for both men.

    Kunta Soyini will be charged with murder and carrying a dangerous weapon when he is captured. Quan Soyini faces charges of murder, conspiracy to commit and aiding and abetting.

    Anyone with information on the whereabouts of either suspect can call Hartford Police Lt. Brian Foley at 860-757-4463 or Crime Stoppers at 860-722-TIPS.
