Officers were called to Hartford Hospital about 11 p.m. Monday and talked to the man, who had a minor wound to his right thigh, Sgt. William Mooney said.

He told officers he was walking in the area of 33 Liberty St. about 3 p.m. Monday when someone came up to him, put his hand on his shoulder and fired a small-caliber, semi-automatic weapon with a brown handle, he said. A bullet grazed the man’s thigh; both men fled.
