Police ID the 3 People Shot Outside Farmington Bar

Three people were shot outside of a bar in Farmington, Connecticut, early Sunday morning.

According to police, just before 2 a.m. right as The Tavern at the Exchange on Farmington Ave. was closing, about 100 people were outside in the parking lot when shots rang out.

An unknown number of shots were fired and three people, two males and a female standing in a group were hit.

Police have identified the victims as Christopher Solis, 28, of Bristol; Angel Albelo, 26, of Waterbury; and Rosalinda Rojas, 26, of Terryville.

All three victims were transported to Hartford Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives said  they believe there is only one male shooter.

"Detectives are here working the scene, interviewing witnesses and trying to identify the persons involved in the shooting," Farmington Lt. Patrick Buckley said over the weekend.

It does not appear that victims knew the shooter, but that the shooter targeted them for some reason.

There had not been a fight in the bar prior to the shooting, according to police.
