Hartford police are searching for a suspect accused of firing at officers in the city’s North End Tuesday.
According to Lt. Paul Cicero, officers in an unmarked police vehicle were working a firearms investigation in the area of Vine and Capen street when they found a person of interest in the case. Cicero said that person opened fire before the officers could get out of the car, then ran away.
Both officers were taken to the hospital as a precaution, but they were not hurt.
Police said the suspect fired approximately eight times and that investigators found casings at the scene. One shot went through the passenger side window of the vehicle.
