Dozens of officers converge on the scene on Elm Street

Two police officers were shot while responding to a shooting in New Haven, Conn., on Saturday, prompting an armed standoff with the suspect, law enforcement officials said.

Alderman Frank Douglass, D-2, who lives within a block of the Dwight-area site, said he had heard that the incident started as a domestic dispute and that a woman was shot inside the building. She was rushed to Yale New Haven Hospital where she is undergoing surgery and is in critical condition. Officers Eric Pasino and Scott Shumway were responding to a report a woman had been shot several times inside a home around 10:30 a.m. Shumway was shot in the arm and is still being treated.

Police say that as the two officers endeavored to locate the suspect, he professedly started shooting at them.

The area is shut down and police have ordered the public to avoid the area for safety.
