HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- Hartford Police taped off the area near the "Up Or On The Rocks" nightclub early Friday morning, after the second fatal shooting resulting from a dispute there, in less than a month.
"After it closed they pushed everyone outside. The disturbance continued outside and up the street, a fight broke out with an assault," said Lt. Brian Foley, Hartford Police. "Shortly thereafter, a shot was fired."
Twenty-one year-old Miguel Delgado, of East Hartford, was killed in Friday's shooting.
The shootings are unrelated, but they both came at the end of 18-and-older nights at the club.
"Almost mirror images of each other," said Lt. Foley. "The similarities are incredible. Basically, just small little things that separate the two."
Among other things, police say they'd like to see more cooperation from club owners.
"They can't just push the patrons out the door and close the door, and say 'It's not our problem anymore'. They need to take a little bit more responsibility in that," Lt. Foley said.
Especially with nearby colleges currently getting back in session, police fear that if something doesn't change, it's just a matter of time before the tape goes up again.
"We hope to get them on board with us in that thought," said Lt. Foley. "I mean, it's unfortunate events like this that kind of bring that to light."
Police have already arrested a suspect in the August 4th homicide. So far, in the shooting early Friday, they have a person of interest in mind, but not in custody.
