New Haven police are investigating after two people were shot on Sunday morning.
Police and firefighters responded to a report of a person shot on Ferry Street between Chambers Street and Saltonstall Avenue in the Fair Haven neighborhood just after 5 a.m.
According to police, an ambulance transported a 40-year-old woman who had been shot to the hospital. She was transported with life-threatening injuries, underwent surgery and remains hospitalized in stable condition, authorities said.
A few hours later, investigators said a second gunshot victim was found at a home on Rowe Street. A 34-year-old man sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the thigh and remains in stable condition, authorities said.
Investigators said they believe a gunman shot the man and then inadvertently shot the woman, too.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Haven Police Department at (203) 946-6304 and callers may remain anonymous.
