A person was shot on Henry Street between Ashmun Street and Dixwell Avenue, roughly three quarters of a mile from Science Hill.

The New Haven Police and Fire Departments were dispatched in response to the incident at 11:13 a.m., and Yale Police Department Chief Ronnell Higgins alerted the Yale community of the incident by email about an hour and a half later. Higgins advised Yalies to avoid the area while the police investigated.

The victim of the shooting — 22-year-old Niquelle Lamar Landelius of New Haven — called in to report the incident, NHPD spokesman David Hartman told the News.

Landelius was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound to the buttocks, according to a NHPD press release. He was reported to be “alert, conscious and in stable condition.”

Hartman said the NHPD would not speak about a suspect “unless we are looking for the public’s help, which we are not.”

The investigation is ongoing.
