Hartford Man Killed Thursday Night :Police

A city police officer was stabbed in the neck this morning when she was investigating a disturbance at an apartment complex at 5 Constitution Plaza, police said.

Police say that the female officer suffered a life threatening injury and is in critical but stable condition at Hartford Hospital.

Court records show the landlords of an apartment building where a Hartford, Connecticut, police officer was stabbed in the neck and critically wounded had been trying to evict a woman who they say wandered the halls late at night and confronted other residents in a hostile way.

Police investigate the scene after a police officer was stabbed in the neck in Hartford, Conn., May 17, 2018.

As of Thursday afternoon, the officer was listed as being in critical condition. "They went in, and when they got in there, they saw the woman had the officer in a headlock and was stabbing her in the throat".

During an earlier news conference at Hartford Hospital, officials said she had undergone surgery, according to the Courant.
