A sixteen-year-old male was killed in the Elm City last night — the first youth homicide of 2015.
According to a press release from the New Haven Police Department, officers were dispatched to Exchange Street, near Blatchlesy Avenue, shortly after midnight responding to reports of a double shooting. At the scene, emergency responders attended to two victims of gunshot wounds: the sixteen-year-old and 20-year-old Justin Compress. Compress was shot in his shoulder, hand and wrist, but is in stable condition, according to the release.
