Attempted Robbery/Suspect Shot

On July 21, 2015, at 8:28am, after a 911 call, a Hartford Police Department Traffic Division Officer was traveling north on Franklin Avenue when he was flagged down by an employee of Barranquitas Bakery. Further investigation determined that the accused entered the bakery and attempted to steal a large tip jar filled with cash from the counter. Employees of the bakery confronted the accused and a physical altercation ensued. Based on witness statements, the accused made a motion as if he was removing a weapon from his waistband. One of the employees, who is licensed to carry a firearm, feared that the accused had a weapon, removed his firearm and discharged one round striking the accused in the leg. Witness statements were taken at HPD by the Major Crimes Division. The accused was transported to Hartford Hospital where he was treated and released. Upon release from the hospital, the accused was taken to HPD and charged. The investigation is ongoing.
