(WTIC-AM) -- One person was found shot to death behind Bulkeley High School in Hartford today.

Hartford Police received reports of shots fired shortly after noon and received shot-spotter activations as well.  Responding patrol officers found a single victim, 34-year old Jorge Alicea lying behind the high school suffering from gunshot wounds.

Officers immediately began life saving maneuvers and later transported Alicea to Hartford Hospital where he was pronounced deceased around 1:23 p.m.

It marks the 14th homicide in the Capitol City this year.

The school on Wethersfield Avenue in the city's South End was not in session.

The incident follows an early-morning shooting also on Wethersfield Avenue, in which a 24-year-old Manchester man was wounded.

In an earlier incident, a 32-year-old man was shot overnight and later died in Hartford's north end on Earle Street.
