A 28-year-old man was shot in a Starr Street backyard while trying to flee an armed intruder.
That’s the story he told police.
He said he’d pulled into his driveway around 10 p.m. Monday when he got out of the car and a gunman in a baseball cap “confronted” him. The victim said he first tried to wrestle away the gun, then “decided fleeing was a better choice. He said the man fired a shot which struck him in his right calf,” reported police spokesman Officer David Hartman. The victim went to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries; police have caught the shooter.
A 38-year-old man also went to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries after two face-masked strangers stabbed him in the torso and face at the Farnam Courts project.
That the story he told police.
He said he didn’t recognize the two men who attacked him before he ran to a friend’s apartment for help around 7:45 p.m. Sunday, then went by ambulance to the hospital.
Police spoke to a witness who led them to the site of the attack, wherethey “located a pool of blood,” Officer Hartman reported. “This is far from the location given by the victim. When detectives told [the victim] his story was inconsistent with the evidence, he told them he’d said all he was
going to say.”
