Police ID Bristol Man Killed in Hartford Shooting

A second shooting victim was being questioned.

A Bristol man is dead after a shooting in Hartford Tuesday evening, and police are currently questioning another shooting victim found at a separate location to see if the cases are connected.

Police said the fatal shooting happened in the area of 240 New Britain Ave. The victim, 46-year-old Richard Kinoshita, Bristol, was dropped off at Hartford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He'd been shot once in the torso.

Police are speaking with the person who drove him to the hospital.

According to Lt. Paul Cicero, investigators believe the shooting was drug-related. Large amounts of marijuana were found at the scene.

Around the same time, police found a second shooting victim near Atwood and Ashley streets. Cicero said that victim was conscious and alert and is being questioned by detectives. Investigators believe the two incidents may be connected and are looking into whether the victim found on Atwood Street may have been transported from a different location.

Both incidents remain under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hartford Police Department's Major Crimes division. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
