2 Connecticut police officers were shot by a gunman and the suspect is still barricaded in a home



Two police officers were shot Saturday and the suspect is still barricaded within a home in New Haven, Connecticut.

New Haven Police told Sinclair the incident occurred around 10:30 a.m. Saturday. The New Haven Police Department was alerted to the gunshots by a report from their "Shot Spotter" system.

The incident occurred on the 600 block of Elm Street. When officers arrived on the scene they learned a 51-year-old woman was shot and had run from the home to a neighbor’s house. She was then transported to a nearby hospital and is in critical condition. Police are not releasing her name at this time.

When the police officers tried to clear the home after the woman was shot, gunfire erupted. Two police officers were then shot in the arm by the suspect. The New Haven Police Department confirmed that the officer's injuries are not life-threatening.

The officers have since been transported to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.

This report was provided by Erin Vogel-Fox of Sinclair Broadcast Group.
