HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Hamden Police are on the scene of a shooting in the town.

According to police, the shooting took place at the intersection of Dixwell Avenue and Dudley Street.

Officials say they are currently searching for three men believed to be involved in the crime.

Authorities say one man has been transported to a local hospital for treatment. Police did not elaborate on his condition.

One resident who lives nearby says he’s seen numerous incidents in this area, fueling his decision to move to a different location.

“That’s one of the reasons that we’re moving further into New Haven, actually,” explained Hamden resident James Hargraves. “Away from southern Hamden because it’s just getting increasingly more and more violent in the area.”

No identities have been released.
