A man was shot in the penis in New Haven Tuesday night and police are looking for the shooter or shooters.
Police said they responded to the 400 block of Huntington Street at 8:49 p.m. Tuesday after ShotSpotter went off in the area.
Then, at 9:01 p.m., security staff from Yale-New Haven Hospital reported to police that a 27-year-old New Haven man had been shot in the penis.
Police spoke with the victim, but he wouldn’t answer the detective’s questions.
Officers also interviewed the people who dropped the victim off at the hospital and said they knew nothing about the shooting.
They told officers they had seen the man bent over, screaming that he’d been shot in the penis, so they gave him a ride to the hospital.
Minutes after the victim had arrived at the hospital, police received a report that a Nissan Versa that had been stolen from Milford had crashed into a utility pole at Goodrich Street at Shelton Avenue. Investigators said video showed the crashed Nissan might have been involved in the shooting and there might have been more than one shooter.
The caller who reported the crash said a female driver ran from the scene.
Anyone who witnessed the crime or has information should call the NHPD Detective Division at 203-946-6304.
