September 16, 2016

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -Two people were arrested last week in connection with a shooting that happened in February.

Ranald Colman and Miguel Rivera, both of whom are already behind bars on unrelated charges, were served arrest warrants on Sept. 8.

Hartford police said they responded to the area of 303 Mary Shepards Pl. just before noon on Feb. 6. Their ShotSpotter detection system had alert them to seven gunshots.

They said they also received a call that reported a victim being struck by gunfire in the same location.

Officers found the victim to have wounds to the face, arm, right leg and buttocks.

The victim was transported to St. Francis Hospital and later listed in stable condition. The victim refused to cooperate with police.

A total of five .22 caliber shell casings and one .45 shell casing were found at the scene, according to police.

In December, police said an anonymous tip was live on their website through which Colman and Rivera were developed as persons of interest.

Multiple witnesses identified them as the shooters.

Police said both were convicted felons with extensive arrest histories.

Rivera's warrant charged him with first-degree assault, conspiracy to commit first-degree assault, criminal possession of a firearm and carrying a pistol without a permit.

His bond was set at $500,000.

Coleman's warrant charged him with the same.

Both warrants were served while the suspects were already incarcerated, according to police.
