Hartford Police Make Arrest In Spring Shooting
Hartford police have arrested two men in connection with a shooting that occurred last spring.
They say it was in the wee hours of April 27 that a car was shot at on Sisson Avenue.
Investigators identified two suspects as 28-year-old Jorge “G” Oquendo and 37-year-old Luis “Ping Ping” Diaz.
Police say the driver of the car that was fired upon had been tailed from Interstate 84 and that the victim had had a long-standing disagreement with the suspects.
Investigators say both men have long criminal histories.
Oquendo was arrested for an attempted murder in 2003 and a 2010 firearms case. He was on probation at the time of the shooting.
Diaz was tied to a 1999 homicide and is currently behind bars on an unrelated charge.
Both are facing attempted assault, conspiracy, and gun charges.
