Authorities Arrest Man Wanted in New Britain Triple Shooting

Police have arrested a suspect in a New Britain triple shooting in March that left a woman, a 17-year-old and a 12-year-old injured, according to New Britain police.

Police identified 37-year-old Jermaine Tywane Scott, of New Britain, as the suspect shortly after the March 28 shooting. Authorities said the incident was not random and that it appears to have stemmed from a domestic dispute.

On March 28, officers were sent to a home on Newington Avenue to investigate reports of gunshots and found the victims from apparent gunshot wounds. Another child in the home was not hurt, police said.

The victims were taken to area trauma hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Scott was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force on Dove Lane in Middletown Monday morning. He is charged with three counts of criminal attempt to commit murder, one count of criminal possession of a firearm, one count of criminal use of a firearm and one count of criminal possession of a high capacity magazine.

The accused was held on a $2 million bond and is due in court Tuesday.
