FOX61 First on the Scene: Hartford police cruisers damaged by fleeing suspect
It happened around 3 a.m. Coleman Drive was for the most part completely blocked off and at least six police cruisers were in the area. The scene cleared at just around 5:30 a.m. and Coleman Drive was reopened.
Police said they recognized the driver as somebody wanted for questioning in Sunday’s homicide in Hartford, when a 63-year-old man was shot dead near Harden and Westland streets.
Police said the driver tried to take off, smashed into two cruisers and almost hit officers, then hit a pole and another cruiser before getting away.
Police said no officers were hurt and their investigation is ongoing.
