    Police are responding to a shooting on Burton Street, NBC Connecticut confirmed.

    The unidentified male victim sustained non-threatening injuries, Deputy Chief Brian Foley said.

    The shooting on Burton Street came during a anti-violence vigil being held at the Hartford City Hall Atrium. 

    Mothers United Against Violence held the vigil in wake of Hartford's 29th homicide of the year. Earlier on Wednesday, a man was fatally stabbed in the city, marking this year's 30th murder.

    Connecticut's capitol has the highest homicide rate in all of New England for 2015, following a spike of homicides in the summer.
