3 men dead in Hartford overnight shootings 


Hartford police Sunday arrested a city man in connection with a homicide that was one of three fatal weekend shootings in the city, police said.

Officers responded to a ShotSpotter notification in the 600 block of Wethersfield Avenue about 12:26 a.m. and found 24-year-old Jordan Phipps suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Hartford Police Department.

Phipps, of Bloomfield, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said “suspect information was developed” and an arrest warrant was approved by a Superior Court judge charging a city man in the homicide. Suspect Chan Williams-Bey was located at a residence on Pratt Street and “was taken into custody by members of the Hartford Police Violent Crimes Unit and Fugitive Task Force without incident,” police said.

Williams-Bey, 27, of Pratt Street, Hartford, is charged with murder, first-degree assault and criminal possession of a firearm, police said. He was being held in lieu of $5 million bail late Sunday.

Police said that while the homicide was being investigated, another victim arrived at Hartford Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds that weren’t life threatening. That man was expected to survive.

A little over an hour later, police responded to another ShotSpotter notification at 1:52 a.m. and found two men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

One of the men was unresponsive on the scene and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The other was taken to St. Francis Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The men were identified as William Tisdol, 23, and Hakeem Dickson, 27,  both of Hartford.

The Hartford Police Major Crimes and Crime Scene Divisions responded and were investigating the incidents.
