LONGMEADOW, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Gunfire erupted outside of a business in South Windsor, CT this morning, leaving two people hurt.

The suspect in the shooting was arrested a short time later just over the border in western Massachusetts.

Mass. State Police spokesperson David Procopio said that the suspect has been identified as 33-year-old Alan Rosario of Springfield.

“One victim had a confirmed gunshot wound. The other one, it is possible he got hit with either shrapnel or fragments from the original shooting,” said South Windsor Police Sgt. Mark Cleverdon.

Investigators said there was some sort of fight in the parking lot of a business associated with shipping and trucking when one victim was shot and the second person was injured.

The suspect, who police said is an employee of the business, then drove off heading through Enfield, CT and finally stopped and captured along I-91 north, just over the Massachusetts border in Longmeadow.

“They were able to find the vehicle and get behind it and they conducted a felony stop with that vehicle just over the Connecticut state line into Massachusetts, where they were able to take the suspect into custody,” Cleverdon added.

Police said the suspect did have a gun with him at the time of arrest.

Procopio said that Rosario was taken to the Mass. State Police barracks in Springfield and booked on a fugitive from justice charge.

Both victims have been released from the hospital.
