Hartford police have arrested a suspect in the shooting death of 33-year-old Timothy Burt, who was gunned down on Enfield Street earlier this month.
Twenty-four-year-old Samuel Stevenson has been charged with murder and criminal possession of a firearm.
On June 11, police responded to the area of 69 Enfield Street for a Shot Spotter Alert and found Burt suffering multiple gunshot wounds and unresponsive. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to police, through investigation they learned that there had been several altercations between Burt and Stevenson and some of their friends. Two days before the incident, both men were involved in a fight at Greenfield Street and Enfield Street. The initial incident was never reported to authorities, but police believe it was the “boiling point” that led to the shooting.
Police secured an arrest warrant for Stevenson on Monday and arrested him. They also found a gun suspected to have been used in the homicide, police said.
Stevenson was held on a $1.5 million bond.
