    Hartford Police Investigating City's 18th Homicide

    One man is dead after suffering multiple gun shot wound early Saturday morning in Hartford.

    Police were called to 13 Elliott St. around 2 a.m. this morning after an argument and a shooting occurred outside of that residence. They found one victim, Jonathan Whaley, 34, of Hartford, suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the lower torso. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. A second victim, who has not been identified, suffered a minor head injury.

    Whaley's friends remembered him as a kind and generous person. 

    "He was a wonderful person," said Rhonda Koromanian, who has known Whaley for years. "He would give you the shirt off his back if he could."

    This is the city's 18th homicide of the year.
