A 14-year-old student was shot outside Hillhouse High School in New Haven after a basketball game on Monday evening, according to police, and extra police are expected today.

Police received the report of shots fired at Dixwell Avenue and Munson Street around 8 p.m. on Monday. The intersection is a few blocks away from the school, which is located at 480 Sherman Parkway.

There they found a ninth-grade high school student suffering from two gunshot wounds. Police said the victim was shot in the hand and a bullet also grazed his leg.

His injuries are considered non-life threatening and police said an ambulance brought him to the hospital for treatment.

The shooting happened just after a basketball game at the Floyd Little Athletic Center that had drawn a crowd of 2,000.

Spectators were in the process of leaving when the gunshots rang out and scattered, police said.

Responding officers surrounded the school and blocked off the Sherman Parkway at Henry Avenue and Munson Avenue. Police taped off the athletic center and an ambulance arrived on Munson Street to transport the victim.

Nine officers, including several New Haven police school resource officers, along with school security, were present during and after the game and responded to the incident, according to police.

Police have not identified any shooting suspects and are actively investigating.

Authorities said two adults were arrested, but the arrests were for interfering with police.

Police said they found a gun on the ground near where they made the arrests but have not been able to connect it to the shooting.
