Hartford police have arrested a second person in a shooting and car crash that left one dead and two other injured on July 6.
Hartford officers responded to the scene in the area of Capitol Avenue and Prospect Avenue and found West Hartford officers helping several people involved in a car crash.
The driver, 19-year-old Junny Lara-Velazquez, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and later died at the hospital. A female passenger was shot in the thigh and another female teen was injured in the crash, according to police.
On Thursday, police located 29-year-old Edwin Franqui at an apartment on Laurel Street in Hartford and arrested him in connection with the shooting. He faces charges of murder, accessory to murder, first-degree assault, criminal use of a firearm, and possession of a pistol without a permit. He is being held on $1.25 million bond.
Police arrested 24-year-old Edwin Franqui last week on murder charges in the same incident. He is the brother of 29-year-old Edwin Franqui. The brothers share the same name, police said.
