A second Connecticut shooting victim is dead after a suspected robbery attempt at a Hartford apartment.

A 17-year-old Connecticut girl died of a gunshot wound Tuesday, three days after she and three others were shot during a suspected robbery attempt at a Hartford apartment, police said.

Alondra Vega-Martinez, who lived in the apartment, was the second person killed in the shooting, police Lt. Aaron Boisort said in a statement.

One man, Joseph Vargas Mercado of Philadelphia, was killed in the shootout. A second resident of the apartment was in critical but stable condition at the hospital, police said.

Investigators believe the robbery suspects and someone inside the apartment exchanged gunfire Saturday afternoon, Boisvert said. A large but undisclosed amount of money, a cash counting machine and a firearm with an obliterated serial number were recovered from the home, police said.
