Nineteen-year-old man murdered in the Hill

A man was shot dead Friday evening in the Hill neighborhood, at the spot of a homicide a month earlier.

The New Haven Police Department received reports of gunshots at Frank and West Streets at 11:05 p.m. When officers arrived, they found Robert Cirino, 19, with gunshot wounds in the chest and leg, according to department spokesman David Hartman. Cirino was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Cirino was killed at the same location of another homicide, the May 4 shooting death of 29-year-old Nathan Richardson. The NHPD’s Major Crimes Unit has launched an investigation into both cases, but thus far has made no arrests.

The Elm City’s homicide count for 2012 now sits at seven.
