NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven police say that a man who got shot on Tuesday morning is now helping police track down the shooter.

Police say that at around 8 a.m., officers responded to Eldert Street, where a man was shot multiple times in the lower half of his body.

The shooter then drove away.

The victim was transported to the hospital and is expected to recover. He is alert, talking and cooperating with the investigation.

“Hopefully whoever was involved in this comes forward or something just like things get resolved because you don’t need this. You don’t need this walking to work or doing your everyday thing,” said Greg Stenson, New Haven.

Police say they have a lead on a possible suspect of the shooting but no arrests have been made at this time.
