Police have arrested a woman in connection to a shooting that left one woman dead and another woman injured in New Haven on Tuesday night.

Emergency crews received a report of a person shot near the intersection of Legion Avenue and Auburn Street around 10 :15 p.m. When officers arrived, they said they found a woman who had been shot near a parked car and also detained 32-year-old Brianna Triplett, of West Haven, at the scene.

Dwaneia Alexandria Turner, 28, of New Haven, was transported to Yale New Haven Hospital with a gunshot wound, where she later died, according to police.

At the crime scene, officers said they learned of a second gunshot victim who was now outside a corner store nearby on Sylvan Avenue. Authorities said the 28-year-old West Haven woman had been shot in the hand and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Before the shooting, investigators said they believe there was an argument between the three women on Auburn Street.

Detectives said in the early stages of the investigation, they have arrested Triplett and charged her with assault. She was held overnight in lieu of $1 million bail. On Wednesday morning, she went to an arraignment hearing in New Haven.

The homicide investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact New Haven Police Department at (203) 946-6304.
