Waterbury Police Arrest Man on Attempted Murder Charge

Waterbury police have arrested a man accused in a brazen afternoon shooting in front of a liquor store on Willow Street, at Woodlawn Terrace, on Dec. 2.

Surveillance video shows a man wearing a dark mask and jacket come around the corner onto Willow Street around 4:30 p.m. and begin shooting. Another camera angle shows three men standing nearby, one of whom was shot in the throat.

Waterbury police identified 18-year-old Levar S. Roach as the suspect and secured an arrest warrant earlier this month. On Tuesday police announced that investigators had located Roach and took him into custody.

Roach is charged with criminal attempt at murder, illegal discharge of a firearm, first-degree reckless endangerment and illegally carrying a pistol without a permit. He was held on a $75,000 bond and is due in court Tuesday.

The victim who was shot was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital and police said he is still recovering
