(Updated) An 18-year-old man is reported in critical condition in the hospital following a shooting in the vicinity of Goffe Street.
The shooting occurred around 8:45 p.m. Sunday. Cops responded to a report of gunfire; they found the victim up the street “lying on the ground,” “shot in the lower back,” according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman. Firefighters gave him emergency care before his dispatch to the hospital.
Another shooting of an 18-year-old took place around 6:15 p.m. Sunday around Lloyd and Wolcott streets in Fair Haven. Witnesses told the police that three men attacked a fourth on the street. “A single shot was heard, and the victim fell to the ground,” Hartman reported. “The three assailants took running. The victim got up and fled, as well.” The victim showed up at Yale-New Haven with a wound to his leg. He said the three men were robbing him.
Also, according to Hartman:
A state trooper was chasing a speeding driver through a red light on the East Shore near the I-95 ramp when the trooper crashed into another car. The driver of that other car went to the hospital “for evaluation and treatment of his injuries.” Firefighters and medics took care of the trooper at the scene. “Both vehicles sustained substantial damage, and were towed away.” Hartman said the trooper had his emergency lights and siren on during the chase.
(Update) Police have recovered seven of those 10 stolen adult tricycles used in a city parks program. (Read about the recovery of the first two here.)
On Sunday, a Chapel Street resident called police to turn in a trike. She had bought it for $30 from “someone in the street,” according to city outdoor adventure coordinator Martin Torresquintero. On Monday morning, police recovered two more trikes behind St. Paul’s Church at 150 Dwight St., he said.
Another two trikes were recovered Monday from behind a business at County and Goffe, police said.
That leaves three still missing. Torresquintero described the vehicles this way: “They have baskets and unique parking brakes on their right sides. They are quite large, each painted blue, red or mint, depending on their size, and are easily identifiable.”
Seen ‘em? Call Torresquintero at (203) 627-4909 or parks Deputy Director Bill Dixon at (203) 627-7744.

I hope the young man survives. What a shame that the children of New Haven shoot each other :(.
