POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Both Poughkeepsie police and the community are expressing frustration over the lack of an arrest in the fatal shooting of a high school basketball star earlier this month, according to a report by Time Warner Cable News.
Caval Haylett Jr., 18, was shot as he stood with a crowd of people on Winnikee Avenue on March 9. Moments later, another teen was wounded as he walked through the intersection of Bement Avenue and Harrison Street, police said. Haylett died on March 10.
Mayor Rob Rolison, who has vowed to commit every resource to “bring this man’s killer to justice,” told Time Warner Cable News this week that he remains confident that a suspect will be found.
City officials and police say witnesses to the shhotings of Haylett and the other teen need to tell authorities what they know, the Time Warner Cable News reported.
Meanwhile, some in the community are citing a lack of communication on the police’s part, the Time Warner Cable News report said.
Anyone with any information about this shooting is asked to call the Police Department’s confidential tip line at (845)-451-7577.
