NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police in New Haven are investigating a late night shooting that left a man dead.

Capt. Anthony Duff says officers responded to the area of Congress Avenue and Redfield Street at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday in responder to an alert from ShotSpotter, the city's automated gunfire detection system.

The victim was found in the street. He was taken by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he was pronounced dead. He has been identified as 28 year old Thomas Hart, previously of Milford. No word on arrests.

It was the city's  second homicide of 2019.

The shooting occurred in the same area as a non-fatal shooting on Monday. In that case, a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm.

Police say it's unclear if the shootings are connected.
