A man was shot in the thigh near a playground at a New Haven housing complex and the area is blocked off as police search for the shooter.
Police responded to the Farnham Court Housing complex at 1:19 p.m and found a 36-year-old man who'd been shot in the thigh.
He was conscious, alert, able to speak to officers and was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital, police said.
Police believe the shooter might still be somewhere in the complex, so pedestrian and vehicle traffic are suspended as the search continues.
Investigators are familiar with the suspect and the department's bureau of investigation is reviewing video footage and collecting evidence, according to police.
Anyone who saw the shooting or who has information about it should call detectives at 203-946-6304.
