Brooklyn Man Will Face Trial in East Hartford Triple Shooting

View Comments

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A Superior Court judge says there is enough evidence to try a Brooklyn, N.Y., man on a felony murder charge stemming from a May shootout in East Hartford.

Horvil Lebrick is accused of shooting 26-year-old Shawnalee Hudson inside her apartment in what police say was an attempted robbery that turned into a gun fight.

Lebrick was one of three men who allegedly entered the apartment on May 6. The others, Andrew and Andraw Moses, twins from Brooklyn, were shot to death.

The Hartford Courant reports that Judge Carmen Espinosa found probable cause to pursue the murder case on Wednesday after prosecutor Dennis O’Connor argued that forensic tests linked Lebrick to Hudson’s shooting.

Lebrick is scheduled to be back in court on Dec. 16.
