NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say a man walked up to another man and said “Happy Halloween” before stabbing him, before he was fatally shot by the stabbing victims cousin.
New Haven police say a 27-year-old city man was walking on the street at about 10 p.m. Tuesday when a knife-wielding assailant approached him, said “Happy Halloween,” and stabbed him.
The victims cousin, a 24-year-old Hamden man, was waiting in a nearby car and heard a commotion, so got out and was also stabbed. But he pulled out a gun and shot the assailant in the chest.
