Man Shot in Hip in Hamden

Police are investigating after a 23-year-old man was shot in the hip in Hamden on Monday night. 

Officers responded to Fairview Avenue and Arch Street at 11:30 p.m. to investigate a report of gunshots and found the Hamden man on the stairs of an Arch Street home. 

It appears two groups of men got into an argument and gunshots were fired, according to police, and a witness said the men who were on foot ran south on Fairview Avenue after the shooting. 

The victim was transported to Yale–New Haven Hospital. Police said his injuries are not considered life-threatening. 

Anyone with information should call Detective Jomo Crawford of the Hamden Police Department Major Crimes Division at (203) 230-4040.
