PD: 14-year-old killed during shooting in New Haven on Wednesday night

New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – New Haven Police have identified the teen that was killed during a shooting on Wednesday evening.

Just before 11 p.m., officers responded to the area of Chatham Street between Rowe and Ferry Streets. When officers arrived, they located a 14-year-old New Haven resident suffering from gunshot wounds.

During a press conference on Thursday, New Haven Police identified the teen as Tyshaun Hargrove.

Hargrove was brought to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“There was a gathering yesterday that was dispersed by the police and then after that gathering, there was a subsequent shooting,” said Shenae Draughn with the New Haven Housing Authority.

It happened in a back parking lot of the Chatham public housing complex.

In a statement to News 8, Tyshaun’s mother Dayshawna Hargrove said her son was beloved.

“Ever since he was born, I knew he was my star. His smile just always melted my heart. This is something I wouldn’t wish on no mother… My baby is gone forever and I can’t get him back. Lord give my family strength.”

He is the youngest homicide in the city of New Haven this year — the 19th homicide overall.

Draughn says she and her staff are going door to door offering social services to any residents traumatized by the shooting death of a child so close to their doorstep.

Hargrove did not live at the housing complex. Draughn says it does not appear that the alleged gunman did either.

Police are asking any witnesses to contact the New Haven Police Department.
