Early Morning Shooting Leaves New Haven Man in Critical Condition

New Haven police are investigating the shooting that left a 41-year-old city man in critical condition early Sunday morning.

A 41-year-old New Haven man is in critical condition after he was shot several times on Davenport Avenue early Sunday morning, police said.

Officers responded to 260 Davenport Avenue in New Haven around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. They arrived to find 41-year-old Courtney Malcom suffering gunshot wounds to the abdomen, legs, arm and foot.

He told authorities he had been robbed and that the shooter confronted him outside the building, police said.

Malcom was rushed to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where he’s listed in critical condition.

Police are investigating to determine whether the shooting was related to an illegal after-hours club operating at that location.

Authorities are following several leads and are searching for a possible subject, described as a light-complexioned young black man with a tall, thin build. Police said he was wearing brown cargo pants and armed with a black pistol. He reportedly fled the scene on foot.

Anyone with information is urged to contact New Haven police detectives at 203-946-6304.
