NEW HAVEN — A 17-year-old city resident has been charged with shooting a 14-year-old boy, police said.
The arrest warrant in the case was signed Tuesday, charging the older teen with first-degree assault, police said.
The 14-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the leg while he was in a business parking lot on Foxon Boulevard, also know as Route 80, at Quinnipiac Avenue, at about 8:30 p.m. May 9, according to police.
The victim, who was found at a nearby residence, was taken to the hospital with a non-life-threatening injury and since has been discharged from the hospital, police said. The suspect was not named by police.
The suspect, who was a gunshot victim earlier this year, was arraigned Wednesday in adult court in New Haven and is in custody in a state Department of Correction facility, police said. NHPD Detective Daniel Conklin was the lead investigator in the case.
