ATV Argument May Be Murder Motive

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ Police say a double homicide in New Haven last month at a house known for drug dealing may have been over an all-terrain vehicle.

Authorities say the shooter in the Jan. 29 slayings at a Fair Haven condominium pointed a gun at one of the victims, Michael Fernandez, who was still alive, and asked where his “quad” was.

Seven people were in the apartment when two men came to the unit. The shootings left the 32-year-old Fernandez and 25-year-old Marquis Sumler dead. A third man was struck by bullets but survived.

Police tell The New Haven Register they are making progress in the investigation and have identified suspects, but so far have not made any arrests.
