New Haven Police say they’ve arrested a resident of the building where the shooting took place in connection with the death of a teenager while she and a friend were handling a firearm. 16-year-old Jamese Hudson died of a gunshot wound to the head in the shooting yesterday afternoon.
Police have charged 19-year-old Lisette Chiclana-Rodriguez of 14 Garden Street with first degree manslaughter, unlawful discharge of a firearm, and carrying a pistol without a permit. She is held in lieu of a million dollars bond.
Police say after the shooting, Chiclana-Rodriguez fled the scene, and tried to hide the weapon at the home of a friend. Detectives say they recovered a .380 caliber handgun believed to have been used in the shooting, but they’re not saying just where they found it because additional arrests are expected.
