A man was shot in New Haven Tuesday night and police said New Haven Task Force officers had seen someone shooting out of a moving vehicle nearby moments before.
New Haven Task Force officers saw someone firing a gun out of a moving vehicle on Foxon Boulevard at the intersection with Quinnipiac Avenue at 6:30 p.m. and they were able to get a good description of the vehicle and the people inside before losing sight of it, police said.
