On December 23, 2020 at approximately 10:30p.m. Hamden Police responded to the area of Oberlin Road and Woodin Street on the report of a shooting.
Upon arrival, officers observed a motor vehicle parked in the middle of the road on Oberlin Road. The operator of the vehicle, a 20 year-old Hamden resident, was shot multiple times in the upper torso. She was promptly transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital with serious injuries.
Investigation revealed that the victim and her friend were traveling westbound on Woodin Street. They were followed by a dark-colored vehicle. The vehicle crossed into the eastbound lane and then attempted to “run them off of the road.” The victim immediately stopped her vehicle, at which time an individual inside of the second vehicle fired numerous times. The offending vehicle fled westbound on Woodin Street.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sean Dolan at (203) 230-4065.
