Briefly: 25-year-old shot in city’s fourth homicide this year

New Haven resident Dewayne Redd, 25, was fatally shot at 4 p.m. Friday while sitting in his car approximately three blocks from the Yale Bowl, City Hall spokeswoman Jessica Mayorga said. Redd, the fourth homicide victim of the year, was shot multiple times in the head in a parking lot at the intersection of Norton Street and Derby Avenue by a lone gunman who walked up to the driver’s side of the vehicle, she said in a press release. The New Haven Register said Redd was arrested last October in connection with an armed street robbery and had been out on bail when he was shot. The Register also said Redd was shot last October.
