Crime

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – A man accused of killing a man and injuring a former New Haven police captain in 2019 was arrested on Tuesday.

Last week, New Haven police announced that an arrest warrant had been issued in that shooting.

Mayor Justin Elicker and Police Chief Renee Dominguez provided an update on the shooting that occurred on August 12, 2019.

The shooting that took place killed 46-year-old Troy Clark of West Haven, and injured New Haven Police Captain Anthony Duff.

Police say the suspect is 59-year-old Albert Eaddy of New Haven. He is already locked up on separate charges.

Eaddy was arrested by warrant and arraigned Tuesday on charges of felony murder, murder, assault in the first degree, and two counts of robbery in the first degree related to this incident.

He is being held on a $2 million bond and was arraigned in court on August 31.

Duff, who has since retired from the police department, was off-duty and saw the shooting in progress. He tried to stop the shooting before the gunman turned on him.

Duff underwent surgery and made a recovery from his injuries.

“I have to say thank you to each and every one of you who allowed yourself the time to put into solving this case for my brother. It does not bring back Troy, it does not bring him back, but I can honestly say I’m not angry, I’m not bitter, but I can say that I am at a closure now where I can rest at night. That you guys took the time to get a murderer off the streets of Connecticut,” said Veronica Clark, Troy’s sister.

Captain Duff fully recovered from his injuries.
