Police Wednesday arrested an 18-year-old Hamden man in connection with the April 29, 2013, murder of Qusaan “QB” McKoy in a 9:19 p.m. shooting outside Haven Market at Chapel Street and Derby Avenue in the West River neighborhood.

Police charged the man with felony murder, murder, first-degree robbery and weapons offenses, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman. He reported that detectives “pursued several leads” that led to obtaining a warrant for the man’s arrest. They arrested the man “at his adult education class” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

This is the second arrest made in the case. Last May police arrested a 21-year-old man known as “Big Head Shaune” after a foot chase; read about that here.

Hartman also issued a release Thursday noting the recent guilty verdict in the murder trial of Craig “Mousey” Hines for the double murder of Lamont “Duece” Brockenberry and Lakeia Vaughn inside a common hallways at 500-502 Winthrop. That double murder occurred back in 2000. An FBI cold case task force, including city cop Michael Mastropetre (pictured below) and F.B.I. Special Agent James Lawton, revived the investigation in late 2010 and arrested Hines on a warrant in 2011; he was in a federal penitentiary at the time serving time for another crime. A jury on April 25 found Hines guilty on all counts in the 2000 New Haven double-murder.
