A New Haven police officer was wounded in a shootout captured on dashcam video while responding to a car crash early Friday morning. The suspect was captured hours later in Hartford.

Officer Chad Curry, a nine-year veteran of the department, has been released from a hospital and is recovering from gunshot wounds to an ear and shoulder, New Haven police said.

Authorities arrested 36-year-old Jose Claudio, of New Haven, after determining he was inside a home on Putnam Street in Hartford. He was taken into custody without further incident, police said.

The incident started around 1:30 a.m. at the intersection of Chapel Street and Blatchley Avenue in the Fair Haven neighborhood.

The state’s Office of Inspector General, which investigates all officer-involved shootings, released dashcam video Friday.
