A person was shot outside a Hartford bar early Friday morning and police are looking for the shooter.
Officers responded to Mi Imperio Bar and Grill, at 455 Franklin Ave., just after 1:30 a.m. on Saint Patrick’s Day and found a victim on the porch. He had been shot in the abdomen, according to police.
An ambulance brought the victim to Hartford Hospital and officers spoke with witnesses, who said a man who had been arguing inside the bar was escorted outside and started shooting.
