A vigil was held on Daggett street for 16-year-old Torrence Gamble that took place in the same spot where he was shot and killed Thursday night. Now friends and family want answers.

Community members mourned the loss of a New Haven teen who was shot and killed in the city late Thursday night.

Friends and family returned to the scene of the crime on Daggett Street Friday night to say goodbye to 16-year-old Torrence Gamble, a student at Riverside Academy who lost his life when he was shot in the head. He died at the hospital just after 3 a.m. Friday.

Gamble’s death is the sixth homicide of the year in the city, and he’s the second New Haven teen to be killed in the past two weeks.

Taijhon Washington, 17, was killed in the Newhallville section of the city March 24.

Mayor Toni Harp met with New Haven high school principals Friday in an effort to crack down on violent crime among city teens.

No arrests have been made in connection with the crime.
