Suspects Arrested in Huntington St. Shooting
Hartford Police have arrested two men wanted in the shooting of 12-year-old Tiesha Doward on Huntington Street early last Monday morning, August 3.

Antwan Hampton, 21, of Cabot Street was apprehended Sunday morning after the car he was riding in was pulled over by police for an unrelated charge. He was placed under arrest without incident after presenting police with his license, which identified him as one of the suspects. Hampton was arraigned in court Monday morning and is being held in lieu $550,000 in bonds.

The second suspect, Terrance Tyson, 28, of 35 Arlington Street, turned himself into police Monday morning.

Both men are scheduled to appear in court September 8.

Doward is recovering from the shooting at Connecticut Children's Medical Center. She is listed in good condition. She is a resident of Batavia, New York, and was staying with her biological mother, Carolyn Armstrong.

Witnesses to the shooting said the assailants had been driving a dark green sport utility vehicle. Early last week, police found an abandoned vehicle matching that description not far from the scene of the crime. Police, led by Detectives Robert Dionne and Stephen Grabowski, tracked down the owner of the vehicle, who had apparently rented it out to several people. Police then traced through the vehicle's various occupants until they arrived at Hampton and Tyson.

Zoning Board Rejects CRT's Day Care Proposal
Hartford's Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) turned down a request from the Community Renewal Team for a zoning exception so that it can build a day care center at Trinity Plaza, which is located at the corner of New Britain Avenue and Broad Street. The plaza, which once contained about five businesses, is now mostly abandoned.

The proposed day care center would have served about 200 low-income children from the area.
