The state is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in connection with the fatal shooting of a Shelton teen in March.
Kristjan Ndoj, 15, was shot and killed in the driveway of a friend’s home on March 15. He was listed in critical condition until his death five days later. His death has been ruled a homicide.
Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect and bringing about a conviction. According to the state Division of Criminal Justice, Gov. Dannel Malloy authorized the reward, per the request of State’s Attorney Kevin D. Lawlor.
Police said Ndoj rode his bike to a friend’s house on Agawam Trail in Shelton when he was shot twice in the driveway. Authorities believe the shooter may have opened fire from the woods across the street.
A spokesperson for Ndoj's family said they are grateful the reward has been offered and that it was in the works for a while. The family is hoping it will lead to a break in the case.
Anyone with information about the case should call state police at 860-685-8190 or 1-900-842-0200.
