NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven police are investigating after one man was killed and two were injured after a shooting Thursday afternoon.

Around 2:30 p.m., officers were called to an area near Exchange and Lloyd streets after reports of shots fired.

Upon arrival, they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds. Both victims were taken to the hospital.

On Friday, police announced 34-year-old Roberto Rivera, of New Haven, died of his injuries. A 28-year-old man from New Haven was shot in the hand. His injuries were non-life-threatening; he has since been released from the hospital.

Just before 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, a third victim, a 20-year-old Waterbury man, arrived at Yale New Haven Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. Police believe he was outside of a convenience store or walking in the area when an unknown gunman began shooting. 

It is unclear what led up to the shooting. No information about a possible shooter was released; however, police believe it was a targeted attack.

Those with information are asked to call (203) 946-6304.
