Waterbury Police are investigating their first murder of the year and said the suspect might be attempting to flee to Canada.
A long-running family feud escalated to murder around 10:45 p.m. Saturday at 686 Baldwin St., police said.
Police said Parasurama Rabindranauth, 26, shot and killed his ex-girlfriend's cousin, Michael Sembltudyal, 39 at the victim's home following an argument over the telephone.
Police said Rabindranauth went to Sembltudyal's Waterbury home with a handgun. Their argument escalated and the suspect allegedly shot the victim once in the chest.
Rabindranauth fled the scene immediately after the shooting and might be out of state, according to police.
Waterbury Police Lt. Christopher Corbett says the men had a history of disagreements over money and property.
Police have obtained an arrest warrant charging Rabindranauth with murder.
