NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Authorities have identified a Connecticut man killed by a gunman who also wounded an off-duty New Haven police captain at the shooting scene.

Police on Wednesday announced the victim was 46-year-old Troy Clark, of West Haven.

New Haven interim Police Chief Otoniel Reyes also said the gunman remains at large and Capt. Anthony Duff continues to recover from being shot multiple times Monday night.

Reyes said Duff came across the shooting of Clark and went after the gunman, who fired several shots at Duff, a 24-year veteran of city police and the department's public information officer. He's expected to make a full recovery.

The shooting prompted a large police manhunt for the suspect.

Police have not released details of what might have led to the shooting of Clark.
