NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - New Haven police say one teenager was killed and another critically injured in a nighttime shooting.
The teens were found wounded near Lincoln Basset Elementary School at about 9 p.m. Monday and brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital. Police say 17-year-old Taijhon Washington of New Haven died and a 16-year-old boy from Hamden is in critical condition.
Police say the victims are half brothers but did not release the name of the 16-year-old.
No arrests have been announced.
Police also responded to a report of a third shooting victim. The person was assaulted but not shot, and authorities say it does not appear to be related to the shooting.
The death is New Haven’s fifth homicide of the year.
