Woman Arraigned On Charges In Bystander’s Death
A Middletown woman was arraigned Thursday on charges of shooting a man to death on Sterling Street in Hartford.
Tyisha McFadden is charged with murder.
According to a police arrest warrant, a fight between several women and girls led to the shooting. The witness said Mcfadden had a gun in her hand, and shot repeatedly at a group of people gathered outside a house. The group included young children, and a newbor.
A woman said she heard the 29-year-old threaten to kill another participant in the confrontation, and other witnesses told police they saw McFadden back on Sterling Street about two hours later, in the back seat of a car. One witness said she saw McFadden shoot a handgun at a female who had been involved in the fight but the bullet instead struck 46-year-old Errol Campbell.
Campbell died after emergency surgery at Saint Francis Hospital.
