Police say that shots were fired in New Haven on Monday afternoon when a road rage incident went violent.
According to New Haven Police Chief Karl Jacobson, the fight began around 3:30 p.m. near the corner of Howard Avenue and 2nd Avenue. One car tried to get away, so the other car went after it.
Jacobson says that the people in the car being chased thought about pulling into the police substation, but they were afraid that they wouldn’t be safe if there weren’t any cops there. Then they chose to drive to Yale New Haven Hospital.
