HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police say a teenager who was one of four people injured in a shooting last weekend in Hartford has died.

Lt. Paul Cicero says 17-year-old Usher Hanns died Wednesday evening of injuries sustained in the shooting in the city’s North End at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

He was the city’s 20th homicide victim of the year.

Officers were alerted to the shooting by the ShotSpotter gunshot detection system, which picked up 12 rounds fired.

Police originally said a 29-year-old man was struck in the leg, a 26-year-old man was struck in the ankle, a 17-year-olf teen was struck in the hand and a man whose age was not released suffered a head wound.

The shooting remains under investigation and there was no word on arrests.
