A man who had barricaded himself inside a building in Branford, Connecticut, on Tuesday and was firing “indiscriminately” at people was found dead after an hourslong standoff with police, the Hartford Courant reports. At least one person was injured by the gunfire, but was said to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries. “It was absolutely insane, we had no idea where the shots were coming from. We heard that he was first shooting from his car, then from above his apartment,” Branford police Lt. PJ O’Malley was quoted saying. “He was shooting from one window to the next window to the next window.” The shooter, who has not been identified, reportedly began firing at random at people on the street in a busy shopping area, and then at police officers as they arrived at the scene. One witness told the Courant that he heard what sounded like 200 to 300 shots, beginning at about noon, from the second floor of a house that has a hair salon on the ground floor. Other witnesses said crowds were seen running from the area. Police have not yet disclosed a possible motive.
