The death of a 26-year-old New Haven resident was shot, and according to law enforcement officials, they are worried about possible revenge. Sources claim that the eighth killing in the city this year was probably caused by a dispute over a gold necklace. Officers responded to a report of multiple shots fired at Thompson St. and Shelton Ave. at around one o’clock. They discovered two shooting victims when they got there. “One gunshot victim, with a shot to the leg, is a 20-year-old New Haven resident,” said Chief Karl Jacobson, of the New Haven Police Department. “The second is a 26-year-old New Haven resident, who was shot a couple of times.”
It was Michael Judkins, age 26, who, according to sources, has passed away. The first investigation established that the two victims were either inside or close to an Audi at the time of the shootings. The Audi had several evidence markers surrounding it and was still moving as of late afternoon with its lights on. The 20-year-old who was not seriously injured received treatment for them. “One of them has had prior police contact,” Jacobson confirmed. “I know him as a resident of this area. Would see him play basketball on the courts. Very well-known member of this community.” The shooting was the result of a dispute over a gold necklace, according to other law enforcement officials.
The chief would not confirm this information. A K-9 was called in to search the area next to a nearby walking route as part of the evidence collection process. “There is some indication that somebody may have run from the scene, but it’s a procedure to check the same whether somebody through something, whether it be a piece of clothing or took a piece of clothing off or threw a weapon or anything like that,” said Jacobson. Law enforcement is concerned about possible retaliation because it’s thought that those involved belonged to various street groups, including the Thompson Street Boys (TSB). When asked if any weapons had been discovered at the site, Jacobson opted not to answer.
