Waterbury police say 24-year-old D’Andre Burrus was charged Monday in connection with the October 2018 killing of Fransua “Frankie” Guzman, a mother of four.

The Republican American reports that Guzman’s friend, Darlene Mazon, was struck in the spine and now uses a wheelchair.

Police say the 960 gang was hoping to avenge the death of one of their members who was allegedly killed by a rival gang.

Guzman and Mazon were not the intended targets.
