Police Make Second Arrest in Simsbury Shooting

Simsbury Police have arrested a second suspect in the shooting of a 20-year-old man in the parking lot of Wolcott Woods Condominiums in Simsbury on the night of Monday, May 19.

Jevon Collins, 28, of Hartford, was arrested on Wednesday.

Police found the shooting victim in the parking lot in front of 47, 49 and 53 Wolcott Woods after receiving several 911 calls, including one from the victim himself.

The victim, who police said was not a resident of the condominium complex, was transported to a local hospital and survived the shooting.

As police began investigating, they said they believed that the victim and the suspect or suspects were acquaintances. 

Collins has been charged with accessory to assault in the first degree, conspiracy to commit robbery in the first degree and threatening in the first degree.

Bond was set at $250,000 and Collins was arraigned in Enfield Superior Court on Thursday.

Last week, police arrested Alexander Rivera, 20, of Hartford. He was charged with first-degree assault, conspiracy/assault in the first degree, first-degree robbery, first-degree threatening, third-degree larceny and conspiracy/larceny in the third-degree.

Rivera is being held on $500,000 bond and is due in court on June 24, according to online court records. It is not clear if he has an attorney.
