2nd person dies after shooting at Manchester gathering

MANCHESTER (AP) — A second person has died following a shooting at a Connecticut commuter parking lot where up to 200 people had gathered last weekend, state police said Tuesday.

Gregory Scott, 24, of Massachusetts, died from wounds from the shooting in Manchester early Sunday morning, state police said. The other victim who died was identified as Jennifer Hicks, 20, of Springfield, Mass. Scott's hometown wasn't immediately available.

Troopers responded to the shooting at the lot near the Buckland Hills mall at about 2 a.m. on Sunday. State police said 100 to 200 people were there at the time, and investigators are asking any witnesses to come forward.

Police also announced that they were looking for a dark gray pickup truck with dark rims, possibility a 2013 to 2016 model.

No arrests have been made. State police did not release details on the gathering.

The shooting was one of three double shootings in Connecticut last weekend. Two people were wounded in a shooting at a large gathering in New London, and two others were injured in a shooting in Bridgeport.
