Police say a 17-year-old boy suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen was taken to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in a private vehicle.

About an hour later, officers responded to St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center when a gunshot victim arrived in a private vehicle.

The 23-year-old man suffered a non-life threatening wound to the upper arm.

The victim has two outstanding warrants and will be taken into custody after treatment.

The shootings do not appear to be related.
