HARTFORD – A 25-year-old man has died after a Saturday night shooting in Hartford.

It was the city’s 20th homicide this year after 19 in all of 2014. The mayor said Sunday the city is working to prevent more violence.

Police said they received calls about gunshots on Blue Hills Avenue just before 9 p.m. Saturday. Shortly afterward, a gunshot victim arrived at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in a private car.

Police said Devon Mitchell of East Hartford died about two hours later from multiple gunshot wounds.

Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra called Mitchell’s killing a “senseless act” and said police, with state and federal partners, are trying to stop new violence. He said individuals also have a responsibility to help and urged community members to reach out to young people.
