HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A $50,000 reward is being offered for tips related to a 2019 Hamden homicide, law officials announced.
21-year-old Dennis Allen-Paige was shot and killed in December 2019. Police say he was walking home from work when a group of people in a red vehicle and tried to rob him.
Police believe the vehicle started following him when he was just blocks away from his home, and continued following him as he turned onto his street.
Allen-Paige ran and was shot in the back.
At a news conference Tuesday, police said Governor Ned Lamont authorized the police department to offer a $50,000 reward to anyone whose tip leads to an arrest and conviction.
Det. Mark Sheppard of Hamden Police said, “We know that there was more than one suspect involved. We know people have information out there.”
Betty Paige, Dennis’s mom, added, “Let’s help the police out. If you know something, talk up, don’t be afraid.”
