An apparently accidental shooting has left a 23-year old New Haven resident dead in the Elm City’s 18th homicide of 2013.
A press release issued by NHPD spokesman David Hartman on Tuesday morning indicated that “several people of interest” had been identified.
A 10:50 am text update to students stated the shelter was still in place.
A recent, nationwide crime trend has struck the Elm City, with the New Haven Police Department reporting six separate incidents of assault in the past week.
On Tuesday afternoon, the New Haven Police Department arrested Adrian Bennett, the man suspected of the October 26 shooting at Key Club Cabaret. The incident left five wounded and one, 26-year-old Erica Robinson, dead. At a press conference just hours after the shooting, NHPD Chief Dean Esserman announced that officers had secured Bennett’s arrest warrant. »
