CT - Knife-Wielding Man Attacked Strangers, Victim Fights Back, Shoots Him

||| Scott Griessel | Dreamstime.com|||

A Connecticut man attacked two people with a knife unprovoked on a New Haven sidewalk after greeting “Happy Halloween!” If it is an advanced Halloween joke, the man will no longer be able to explain as one of the victims fought back and shot him, killing him in the process.

The suspect first approached a 27-year-old city resident and strangely said “Happy Halloween!” before stabbing the unsuspecting man on the elbow. The victim’s cousin happened to be waiting in a nearby car and witnessed the attack on his relative. He got out to check matters, but the suspect stabbed him in the bicep as well.

The 24-year-old victim decided to fight back. He shot the suspect in the chest, killing him in the process.

The authorities responding to the incident verified that the victim’s firearm had a valid permit and was lawfully registered. For now, the victim is not being charged for the fatal shooting of the suspect.

Investigations are still ongoing.

The identities of all those involved have yet to be released.

The authorities are requesting the public’s help for any information on the incident, or on the people involved including the suspect.

Anyone with information on this crime asked to call police at 203-946-6304, call the Anonymous Tip Line at 203-946-6296, text NHPD plus a message to 274637 (CRIMES), or email at [email protected]

One line sums up the growing Liberal Media mentality.

FOR NOW, the victim is not being charged for the fatal shooting of the suspect. (ATTACKER)

So does the media expect or want him charged?

After all , he did kill a likely Democrat Voter.

biased reporting. I am grateful for the 2nd amendment.

notice that the first thing that A-hole cops did was see if they could jail the victim for defending himself and everyone around him.

Just watch, some day things will continue down this lawless path and you will see a rise in an anonymous vigilante group who will take things into their own hands. It seems to be where this antifa group wants things to go. Never let a crisis go to waste mentality. The actions of the dead perp who said happy Halloween is just as stupid.

It's moronic the media centered on the victim trying to change the truth of the matter. Arrogance and ignorance. Do they really think that readers we're worried about a permit. Connecticut land of the Revolution is in the quagmire of socialists hate for America.

Is it the ocean spray causing the problem or has Connecticut citizens forgotten about their importance in our history.

Let your media pay the price for their shameful action. Boycott.

SO… If a firearm is not L&R`d we cannot defend ourselves with out legal jeopardy? Perfect more targets for crooks looking for unarmed (soft) targets.

The 24-year-old victim decided to fight back. He shot the suspect in the chest, killing him in the process.

The authorities responding to the incident verified that the victim’s firearm had a valid permit and was lawfully registered. For now, the victim is not being charged for the fatal shooting of the suspect.

At least he was smart & put the dude down. Perps like that will never be reformed. He saved at least one other life besides his own & should be given a medal or letter of recognition from the New Haven PD or [email protected]

>> 39017,

Completely agree with you. There should be concessions in the law regarding firearm violations when the charges come to light as a result of someone saving their own or someone else's life. And if the first round of judges are liberals who hate guns and charge these people, appellate courts should be given clear warning that these cases will be ultimately dismissed.
