NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WTNH) – New Britain police are investigating a double homicide on Monday afternoon.

Police responded to Walnut Street just before 1 p.m. for the report of shots fired. When officers arrived, they located 33-year-old Michael Jackson of Rocky Hill suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Jackson died at the scene.

Officers located 25-year-old Conrad Jones from New Haven inside an apartment on Walnut Street who was also suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Jones was brought to a local hospital and later pronounced dead.

New Britain police said the investigation shows that both men were known to each other and engaged in an active dispute. Both men were armed.

“The two males involved in this incident were known to each other. This is a very specific and isolated incident. There is no threat to the public at this time,” said New Britain Police Chief Christopher Chute.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact New Britain Police at 860-826-3132.

It was a scary scene to come home to for neighbors on Walnut Street in New Britain.

Liana Copeland says this wasn’t the first time she’s heard of gun violence in her neighborhood.

“I’ve heard it happening more and more so it seems like this thing is getting to become more of a norm which is not good,” she said. “I used to love to come out and go for walks with my kids and stuff like that but now it’s a little uneasy. I’ll probably drive somewhere else and get out and walk around then do it around here.” 

Alexander Rivers said he’s seen the change in his neighborhood too.

“We just try to live through it, stay off to ourselves, keep inside. We don’t bring our kids out,” he said. “I’m from down south, Alabama. It was good to raise children down there but up here, I don’t know about my children being up here like this.”
