NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Police spent the overnight hours investigating the shooting death of a man who was found lying on a New Haven street. It's the city's 14th homicide of 2013.
A block of Ella T. Grasso Boulevard was closed all night and into the morning, blocked off as a crime scene ever since the shots were fired just before 9:30 last night.
"I heard two gunshots, what sounded like gunshots," said Steven Foley. "I came around out front and a lady was pulling up and stopping in front of where the guy was laying down on the ground."
The man on the ground was 36-year-old Hamden resident Nathaniel Bradley. He was pronounced dead at Yale-New Haven hospital.
Gunfire is a rare thing in that section of New Haven.
"I didn't know it was so close to where I live," said Casmir Ebudedike. "This is a source for concern for me and this is a relatively safe neighborhood."
Safe except for a day almost six months ago when a Buick sped away from an attempted police stop and crashed into a Honda at the same intersection. The force destroyed a utility pole and the driver of the Honda later died from her injuries.
Police made an arrest in that case. Detectives investigating Monday night's shooting were concentrating on the area around a white Chrysler 300C, but they're asking for any witnesses to come forward.
The two people who tried to help the victim couldn't tell police much.
"The person who pulled up, they saw someone running down the street, and that's about it," Foley said.
Anyone with information regarding the homicide is asked to contact New Haven police at 203-946-6304.
