Police were responding to a double shooting at a Dunkin' Donuts on Derby Avenue in New Haven.
A witness tells NBC Connecticut, a person pulled up to the Dunkin Donuts in a car and honked the horn. When two people inside the store looked out to see who it was, the person inside the car opened fire.
There's no word on the conditions of the two victims.
Dunkin' Donuts is located at 105 Derby Avenue at the corner of Norton Street.

I really can't understand why my Pops is so fond of New Haven. He was born there and he went to the university there, but he can't see beyond that shit. It's not 1940 anymore, but he doesn't realize it. He's got a place there and I think he's fucking out of his mind. It's on a really nice street, all fat houses, but drive up over the hill or under 95 in the other direction and you're in the ghetto.

Yeah, shootings suck and I feel for whoever got hurt, but it doesn't surprise me. Not much I can say. If one wants a better chance at not being a victim of violence, get out of New Haven.

Wasn't there a shooting outside a Dunkin' Donuts in New Haven just a few months ago? :eek:

Note to self: Make sure all doughnut and coffee needs are met before rolling into New Haven.

New Haven is messed up. It has Yale and a few nice neighborhoods. The rest of it is urban decay and crime. The gun wavin' is ser biz.

But yes, I always felt out of place at the synagogue we went to because it seemed everybody else was a doctor, lawyer or Yale professor.

New Haven was home (maybe still) to some of the largest gun manufacturers in the country (Winchester, Marlin) amongst many other small manufacturers. I'm sure that place has plenty of guns kicking around the streets.

Similar situation on a much smaller scale near here in a small town. Tyco Mallinckrodt (drug pressers) moved into a very small quaint town and everyone thought it was going to be great for that area. Now, the town is a shit hole with property values dropping due to neglect. Neglect due to addiction.

My truck got stolen by the AAA driver that towed my car because we couldn't get the spare off the bottom of it. It was found in the middle of an intersection with a crack head sleeping in it. The cops let the crackhead go and I got to pay the impound charge. I found a crack pipe in it. The cops didn't care.

My friend got mugged during the middle of the day on a busy street (Whitney & Edwards) with people watching. The attackers hit her in the back of the head and took her bag w/her lap top in it. Nobody helped her.

I lived in and around New Haven for over 10 years after having grown up in inner city Boston.
New Haven is not scary, but it can be dangerous. It is a city, there is drug use and crime and most people don't care enough about their neighbors.
I was broken into during the day while at work. They ripped my back door off the hinges. My neighbor was working on his garage and "didn't see nuttin"
You have opulent homes on one block; the next block is all crack houses; then another gang of beautiful homes on the next.
I would only go back to New Haven to visit sillyolbear...and a short list of other close friends...

Old Greenwich. Ya know how many "towns" are in Greenwich? It's crazy.

There's Greenwich, Old Greenwich, Riverside, Byram, Pemberwick, North Mianus, Glenville, Backcountry Greenwich (not really a separate town) and i'm sure i'm forgetting some. They all have their own post offices, schools, some have their own town offices and libraries. It's kinda weird how that place is set up. Way nicer than New Haven:funny1:.

New Haven has some good things going on, but it's pretty scary too.

Have fun down there Kitty. If you want a good meal before the show, go to Applausi right across the street and up the road (1 min. walk) from The Beach House. Saw the Beach House menu and it looks kinda boring. Applausi has good Italian food, bring $$$$.:v:

A couple of high profile crimes and cases in Connecticut that I followed. The murder of a Yale lab student named Annie Le. That guy who comitted the murder Raymond Clarke III or whatever will go to prison for keeps.
http://en.wikipedia....der_of_Annie_Le
The other is this pair of guys who murdered and raped this wife and daughters of a Connecticut family and one has already been sentenced to death and the other one Joshua Komisajevski will recieve the death penalty soon. The pre-trial hearings for that guy are going on now. The rapes and murders happened in Cheshire, Ct. I believe??? Thank God Connecticut is a death penalty state. That's all I've got to say.

Yeah...it's all about the part/section of the city. I'm in the Woodlawn section of the Bronx which is beautiful and awsome but if I cross over the 238th Street bridge and up the hill to Wakefield under the 2 train, it's crack Ave. up there on White Plains Road. The only time I'm up there is to hop on the #2 train at 233rd Street.

New Haven police are investigating four shootings that occurred in a 24-hour span leaving five people injured, one fatally.
Officers responded to 141 Butler Street shortly before 5 p.m. Friday evening, after a caller reported a group of males shooting behind a house.
Officers arrived and found a 16-year-old victim suffering from gunshot wounds. He was transported to the Hospital of Saint Raphael’s where he is in stable condition.
According to the New Haven Register, police say the shooters were members of the R2 drug gang.
Another shooting was reported at 135 Carlyle Street a few hours later. Police said a man was shot in the ankle and taken to an area hospital. His condition is unknown.
The most recent shootings occurred on Hamilton Street. Two men ages 26 and 22 years old were found lying on the ground suffering from gunshot wounds outside of the Crazy Horse Cabaret.
According to police, a car was seen fleeing the scene and police pursued the car into East Haven where the driver was caught and taken into custody.
The driver’s name has not been released.
These shootings happened after a fatal shooting early Friday morning on West Street. 53-year-old Derrick Suggs was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest just before 1 a.m.

I love New Haven. I loved living in New Haven for the 8 years that I was there. That said, I moved as soon as I had kids.

However, I'm willing to bet that, as with most shootings, this was not a random incident. I don't think that living in New Haven necessarily means that you are more likely to get shot. Most people who get shot are targeted by someone who knows them.



Connecticut is a death penalty state.

Not for long, thank God.

I know where you are coming from, but there are a few cities I know of that don't have bad spots. Well, maybe they are technically large towns.

Guess I shouldn't go to Mory's anymore for dinner. I guess lunch might be safe. That place is kinda lame now anyway, I liked it the way it was before they reopened it.

Be safe y'all.:v:

I lived in the South End of Beepo in the '80s. You could hear small arms fire every night.

I lived in Westville in the '90s. We sometimes heard gunfire from across Edgewood Park, but our neighborhood was fairly safe. The Hill, Newhallville, Dixwell -- not so much.

A 23-year-old man, a California musician who moved to Newhallville last winter, was shot to death in what police are describing as an apparent home invasion at his rented house with friends on Bassett Street.

Mitchell Dubey, of 29 Bassett St., was shot at least once inside his house near the front door after police say he opened it and was confronted by a gunman.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police said the killing did not appear to be a "random act" but stated that the investigation remained in its early stages.

His housemates were interviewed at police headquarters.

The shooting happened at about 10:02 p.m. Thursday.
