HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The mayor of Connecticut’s capital city says illegal handguns were involved in a nightclub shooting that killed a man and wounded four other people.
The gunfire erupted inside the Majestic Lounge in Hartford at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
Mayor Luke Bronin says officers were stationed outside the club because of previous problems there and heroically ran inside when they heard the gunfire, possibly saving other lives.
Officials say a 28-year-old man died, and two males and two females were injured. Two victims were in surgery Sunday morning and two others were in stable condition.
No suspects are in custody.
