One person was killed in a Connecticut nightclub shooting early Sunday morning and four others were injured, Police in Hartford said. 

A 28-year-old male was fatally shot, authorities tweeted. 

Another man and a woman were in surgery, and two other victims were in stable condition. 


The shooting occurred at a south-end nightclub, according to police. 

The shooting was reported at about 1:30 a.m., Lt. Paul Cicero told The Associated Press. He told the news service that officers had been stationed outside the club due to previous problems. 

Officers rushed in after the report of the shooting, but they were confronted with large numbers of people running to the exits, Cicero told the AP.
