The East Haven community is mourning the life of a 26-year-old man who was killed in an overnight shooting at a bar.

They say Julius Bolden-Lowe was humble, loved by many, and hardworking.

Family members and friends are devastated over the sudden loss of life. A candlelight vigil was held Saturday night in his honor.

The 26-year-old was involved in a fight that led to a deadly shooting at Bulls Eye Billiards in East Haven, according to police.

“We believe the two people were involved in an altercation all night long. It kind of festered the whole night and led to an altercation that led to one fatal shooting,” East Haven Police Captain Joseph Murgo said.

Friends and family showed up in numbers at the plaza where the shooting took place to honor the life taken too soon, many wearing the shirt ’Long Live Julius’.

Julius would have been twenty-seven next week. 

Police are investigating the incident, but believe the shooting was an isolated incident. 

“We are following all of our leads that come in. We do want the general public to know we are looking for witnesses,” said Murgo.

The second victim who was injured has not been identified. Officials say they are in stable condition and awaiting surgery.

Anyone with information or anyone who witnessed the shooting is asked to call detectives at (203) 468-3820.
