Hamden – Shooter Arrested

Officials have arrested suspects involved in a recent shooting.

On March 29, a shooting incident took place in New Haven. Authorities in Hamden and other towns were provided with a description of the vehicle used in the case. On Tuesday, a local officer identified the vehicle traveling on Skiff Street and attempted to stop the car. The driver fled the area until he crashed the vehicle on Sandquist Circle. He continued to flee on foot but was eventually apprehended by responding officers. 34-year-old Marquis Mcduffie and 20-year-old Jisela Villanueva were both taken into custody. Mcduffie is currently facing charges related to the police chase in Hamden, while Villanueva is being held on outstanding warrants related to the shooting incident in New Haven.

Cromwell – Multiple Charges Filed Against Suspect

Authorities have filed multiple charges against a suspect involved in a recent police chase in Cromwell.

Officials were looking for 36-year-old Samuel Moore in an attempt to question him regarding a possible probation violation. At this point, Moore fled his residence and got into a vehicle. A police chase ensued, concluding when the suspect crashed into another vehicle with two occupants at the intersection of Evergreen Road and Route 3. Moore then fled on foot but was eventually apprehended by officers. He is now facing multiple charges, including violation of probation and reckless endangerment. The incident is still under active investigation and more updates will be released when appropriate.

Authorities would always try to avoid drawn-out vehicle chases as these can result in unexpected collateral effects/injuries, as this case exemplifies. Having said that, people who are injured due to the reckless behavior of others would benefit from the advice that legal experts can provide. Under appropriate circumstances, filing for damages/compensation may be an appropriate response.

At around 2:00 p.m., two vehicles collided at the intersection of West Main Street and Watertown Avenue.

The incident resulted in heavy delays across several city intersections. Authorities have yet to provide other details and are currently investigating the case.

Local police apprehended individuals involved in an unspecified incident at around midday.

Hamden – Police Chase Results In Damage And Injuries

A police chase that started in New Haven ended with a crash in Hamden yesterday afternoon.

Shortly after noon, New Haven police were alerted to a possible crime and tried to apprehend a suspect who fled in a car. The vehicle crossed into Hamden, with local police continuing the chase until the suspect vehicle crashed into an SUV near the intersection of Dixwell Avenue (Route 10) and Benham Street. Officials eventually discovered three occupants in the suspect vehicle. Emergency crews transported one person to the hospital for treatment of injuries. The incident is still being investigated and authorities are looking for possible leads or witnesses who can provide more information.

While it might seem that all the occupants of the suspect vehicle in this case could be liable, investigators still need to consider all possible angles before establishing accountability. This is particularly important because if negligence is discovered, and injured parties are absolved of any ill intent, they can file for damages/compensation under proper circumstances.
