"We had just gotten home from Derby and we heard that someone was shot in the chest and the stomach," one man said as he stood in his front yard with several other people around 11:30 p.m.

No one knew exactly what had happened, nor did anyone report hearing any gunshots.

Police released no details Saturday night about the incident other than to confirm that at least one person had been shot. Their condition was not known, a detective said at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

The administration, town hall, and black "leaders" have blood on their hands as far as concerned. One of the best cops anywhere in the state in recent memory, officer brown, has been throttled and even punished for doing a great job. The kid did more to fight crime in Hamden than anyone in the last 25+ years. And instead of appreciating it and encouraging him they bowed to the NAACP and stuck brown inside the station. Prior to that most kids left their guns home because they were terrified officer brown would catch them. Its shameful that this was done to officer brown. He was saving lives and giving the taxpayers their money's worth. FREE OFFICER BROWN!
