NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police say a 15-year-old boy is dead and two men are in critical but stable condition after assailants opened fire into their car while it was stopped at a road intersection in New Haven.
Police said on Saturday that another teenager was uninjured in the Saturday night attack at the intersection of Davenport Avenue with Vernon Street.
Police believe that the victims’ car was specifically targeted by at least two people who approached it and fired several rounds into the vehicle.
Authorities say Jacob Craggett died in hospital. The wounded include 22-year-old Timothy Jones, who was the driver, and 23-year-old Joshua Craggett.
The uninjured teen was identified as Jerray Jackson. All victims live in New Haven.
Mayor Toni Harp lamented the killing and police asked anyone with information to contact investigators.
