A 34-year-old man was transported to the hospital Monday after he was shot in Waterbury.
Waterbury police say they responded around 8:50p.m. for reports of shots fired in the area of 17 Coe St. When they arrived they found the victim, William Hart of Waterbury, suffering from two gunshot wounds, one to each leg. Hart was transported to Saint Mary’s Hospital. His injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
Police believe the shooting, which took place in the front yard of 17 Coe St, was the result of a long-standing dispute between Hart and a female neighbor. Hart reportedly argued with the neighbor earlier Monday and the female later returned with either family or friends which resulted in the shooting.
The suspect is described as a male about 6-foot-3 wearing a white shirt and dark pants.
The Waterbury Police Detective bureau is investigating. Anyone with information should contact police.
