SOUTH WINDSOR — One person was wounded in a shooting after leaving a car show Sunday night, according to police officials.
The shooting happened around 5:30 p.m. on John Fitch Boulevard — Route 5.
Sgt. Mark Cleverdon said a driver leaving a car show on Nutmeg Road South was stopped in the left-turn lane of the northbound side of John Fitch Boulevard near its intersection with Strong Road when another vehicle pulled up alongside it.
Cleverdon said a charcoal gray Mercedes four-door with dark tints and a yellow license plate — possibly New York — pulled up along the passenger side of the other vehicle. He said a backseat passenger in the Mercedes opened fire on the vehicle.
The vehicle was hit twice, and the sole occupant was hit by gunfire, Cleverdon said.
The gunshot wound victim was found in East Windsor after the shooting, according to Chief Kristian Lindstrom. He said the victim, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, was taken to the hospital for treatment.
The Mercedes fled north on Route 5. The shooter was described by police as a light-skinned Black or Hispanic man.
“There is no threat to the general public,” Lindstrom said.
As crews investigated, Route 5 north was closed at Strong Road until around 9:30 p.m.
Anyone with information of the shooting is asked to contact Officer Christopher Poehnert at 860-982- 0344 or email@example.com.
