Alan Rosario, 33, of Springfield, has been charged with second-degree assault with a firearm, first-degree threatening, first-degree reckless endangerment, illegal discharge of a firearm and third-degree assault, according to police.

The investigation that led to the arrest started when a man called 911 at 8:43 a.m. Tuesday and told police he'd been shot in the parking lot of a complex at 105 Edwin Road in South Windsor, police said.
