HARTFORD --  Hartford police are investigating a homicide on Wadsworth Street in the Frog Hollow section of the city that happened just before midnight Tuesday.

Hartford police said the victim of the shooting is 25-year-old Victor Millan from East Hartford.  According to police, Millan has no criminal record in the City of Hartford and the shooting might have been the result of an argument over a pair of prescription glasses.

Police are now using surveillance video from overhead cameras located along Park Street.  They said there were also some witnesses to the shooting.

Police believe multiple guns were used and said the victim suffered gunshot wounds to his head, neck, torso and leg.

Millan's uncle, Guillermo Mendez, told FOX61 Millan was in the neighborhood on the night of the shooting to visit his grandmother for the 4th of July.

“He comes down here to visit my grandmother because she has health issues every time he makes sure he stops by here as much as could and checks up on her," Mendez said.

Millan graduated from East Hartford High School, works at the post office,  has a son and a daughter on the way, according to his family.

"He was just a great guy he’s a good dude, he’s a hard working guy, he didn’t bother anyone he was in trouble with no one he was a family man, he had a child on the way," Mendez said about his nephew.

Part of Park Street was closed for several hours between Seymour and Hudson streets but the investigation is zeroing in on Wadsworth Street.

Police are focusing their attention on a driveway that leads to one of the apartment buildings.

Hartford Police Deputy Chief Brian Foley said no arrests have been made.
