Police are searching for the person responsible for the shooting of a 22-year-old man early Friday morning.
At about 2:45 a.m. police got the report of a person with a gunshot wound at a Mill Rock Road address, according to police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.
When officers arrived, they found Edward Wright lying in the doorway, Smith said, with a single gunshot wound in his back. Hamden Fire Rescue treated him at the scene and he was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital, Smith said.
Officers found that Wright had parked his car at the corner of Winchester Avenue and Mill Rock Road, and as he was walking to the Mill Rock Road home he heard a gunshot, Smith said. He started running but was struck by a second gunshot, he told police, and collapsed in the doorway.
The Hamden Police Department Detective Division is investigating, and anyone withinformation is asked to call them at 203 230-4040 or 230-4000.
There was a second incident Thursday night where there was a report of a shooting on Belden Road, Smith said. That incident turned out to be a suicide, he said.
