HAMDEN, CT — A man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that injured two people in Hamden last May, according to police.
Shikeem Graham, 27, of Hamden, also faces additional charges after running from police and being found in the possession of drugs and a stolen gun, according to Detective Sean J. Dolan.
Detectives Jomo Crawford and Andrew Lipford were conducting surveillance on Feb. 14 regarding the shooting investigation. They saw Graham, who had an active arrest warrant, getting out of a vehicle in the 1500 block of Dixwell Avenue, according to Dolan.
Dolan said Graham ran from police and was apprehended after a chase. Police searched the vehicle and found narcotics and a stolen .40 caliber handgun that was “altered and modified to shoot fully automatic,” according to Dolan.
Graham was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit, theft of a firearm, illegal possession of an assault weapon, illegal possession of a high-capacity magazine, possession of narcotics and possession of narcotics with intent to sell. He was held in lieu of a $600,000 bond.
Graham was also charged on the outstanding arrest warrant with first-degree reckless endangerment, illegal discharge of a firearm, criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault, criminal possession of a firearm and carrying a pistol without a permit. Graham was held in lieu of an additional $150,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on March 15.
Dolan said the outstanding arrest warrant stems from a double, non-fatal shooting that happened May 13 in the 1500 block of Dixwell Avenue. James Harris and Michael Wooten were previously arrested in connection with the shooting, according to Dolan.
Crawford conducted an extensive investigation into the shooting with assistance from the New Haven Shooting Task Force, Dolan said.
