A lawsuit has been filed over an August 2013 incident in which a Hartford, Conn. dispatcher and two police officers mixed up the location of a shooting victim. The dispatcher gave the officers the wrong address after a call reported shots being fired and after being rerouted to the correct location, the officers did not see the victim, who was not found until one day later. The lawsuit, filed on Friday, names as defendants the two officers, the dispatcher, the police chief, the city of Hartford and the city’s former head of telecommunications.
