Teen Arrested in Goshen Shooting


State police have arrested a 17-year-old boy after a shooting in Goshen early Sunday morning.

State police troopers from the Troop B barracks in Canaan responded to Bartholomew Hill Road in Goshen on Sunday at 2:30 a.m. to investigate reports of a disturbance.

Upon arrival they found the victim, Alfredo Castillo, 27, of Torrington, with a gunshot wound. A LifeStar helicopter transported the man to Hartford Hospital to be evaluated.

State police and K-9 units searched for any other victims or suspects in the area and didn't find anyone else who had been shot. The Western District Major Crime unit also responded and oversaw the investigation.

Throughout the day Sunday detectives spoke with witnesses and collected evidence, then applied for an arrest warrant for a 17-year-old male.

The 17-year-old suspect is not being identified due to his age. He is charged with first-degree assault, criminal possession of a firearm, tampering with evidence, and interfering with police. No further arrests are expected.
