Followup CT: Murder Charge Dropped against Man with Carry Permit
Twenty-six-year-old Kenneth Reid had turned himself in to police March 28. He told investigators he shot 34-year-old Larry Williams of New Britain in self-defense after Williams pulled a shotgun on him during an arranged sale of Reid's sunglasses. Reid has a valid firearms permit.
The Hartford Courant reports that prosecutor Vicki Melchiorre told a judge Wednesday in Hartford that evidence reviewed by the state in the case is consistent with Reid's self-defense claim.
