Hartford police are investigating after two men were shot early Sunday morning and hospitalized with critical injuries.
According to police, two males were shot after a basement party at 156 Edgewood St. in Hartford around 3:38 a.m
Garnett Henry, 43, was shot in the chest. Knorskov Senior,40, was shot in the abodmen. They are both listed in critical condition at St. Francis Hospital and are undergoing surgery.
Both victims are from Hartford.
The home remained cordoned off with crime scene tape at 9:22 a.m.
Police said there were several witnesses to the shootings. No one has been arrested at this time.
Community activist Rev. Henry Brown said that he is hoping "that we can do something to stop all the violence," adding "this is too much."
"I thought it was very terrible. I think some of this needs to stop. It's too bad for the kids," S. Camby, of Hartford, said. "There's nothing for the kids to do anymore."
Brown, who came to the scene to comfort the victims' families said Connecticut's capital city is not safe.
“One thing we know in Hartford is that somebody’s going to get shot," Brown said.
There have already been 14 homicides in Hartford this year.
“We’re talking about people dying, being shot," Brown said. "We’re talking about a community that’s been ruined by bullets, day in and day out. Enough is enough.”
The Hartford Major Crimes Division is investigating.
