Hartford police investigating 2 shootings at same location

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Windsor man is in the hospital after police say he was shot in the head on Tuesday.

Hartford police say that just before noon on Tuesday, 36-year-old Quentin Dickens of Windsor was shot in the head near the corner of Capen and Martin Streets.

Dickens was taken to St. Francis Hospital where he is currently listed in critical, but stable condition. Deputy Chief Brian J. Foley says Dickens is expected to be OK.

Police say they recovered a handgun that Dickens had in his possession at the time of the shooting.

Critical evidence was recovered in the area and police say the suspect is described as a black male, who was wearing a hooded sweatshirt at the time of the incident.

Foley says that on November 13, just before 11 p.m. a man walked into Hartford Hospital claiming to have been shot at the corner of Capen and Martin Streets. Police say they did not receive any citizen calls of gunshots. The victim’s injury consisted of a shallow entry and exit wound to the upper chest and was considered non-life threatening.

Police say this victim has been the victim of gunshots in the past, and that this was the second time in two weeks that he had been shot.

The victim only told police that he had an argument with unknown men and was shot. He said he was dropped off at Hartford Hospital by an unknown person.

Police did not identify the victim of the November 13 shooting.
