Hartford police said they are investigating a deadly shooting that led to a car crash Friday night.

The incident happened in the area of 302 Bellevue St., according to police. Officers received a ShotSpotter alert at approximately 9:13 p.m. and said between 10 and 20 shots were fired.

Responding officers found a car that crashed on Sanford Street. Police said they believe a person shot at the driver from outside the vehicle, causing him to accelerate and crash into a parked car.

The driver of the car that crashed, later identified as 24-year-old Jordan Maddox, of Hartford, was extricated from his car and officials performed CPR. Maddox was later pronounced dead at the hospital, authorities said.

The person who was shot is believed to be the intended target, police said.

There was a homicide in the same area of Hartford in February, according to police. This marks the city's 14th homicide of the year.

Police were at the scene looking for evidence Friday night. A large portion of Bellevue Street was blocked off.
