Assistant Director of Campus Safety George N. Marshall sent a College wide email Friday describing gunshots that were fired near Trinity’s campus.

Marshall said that “at approximately 9:00 p.m., Campus Safety was notified of a shots fired incident that occurred in the area of New Britain Avenue and Summit Street…The initial investigation revealed that two vehicles were involved and that both vehicles fled the area immediately after the incident.”

Marshall additionally said that “[t]here were no injuries reported and the incident does not appear to involve any members of the Trinity Community,” and that “Campus Safety and the Hartford Police Department immediately began an investigation into the incident. Campus Safety is reviewing video footage and will forward all information to the Hartford Police Department.”

Marshall added that Trinity students should “contact Campus Safety if you observe any suspicious behavior or if you are the victim or a witness of a crime. Note the location of yellow emergency phones throughout campus and use them to be immediately connected with Campus Safety.”
