A 21-year-old New Haven man was shot to death Monday evening in the city’s Westville Manor Housing Complex.
When police arrived at 45 Wayfarer St. they found Deran Maebery suffering from gunshot wounds. He was rushed by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hosiptal but was pronounced dead a short time later.
It was the 17th homicide of the year in New Haven.
A suspect was originally arrested and charged in the murder, but was later released from custody and charges were dropped when police determined witness accounts and evidence was not credible.
Anyone who can provide information about the killing can call the New Haven Police Department at (203) 946-6304.
