Windsor Man Charged In Hartford Double Homicide

A Windsor man accused of killing two men during a quadruple shooting on Albany Avenue in September was arrested Tuesday, police said.

Latroy Johnson, 40, was charged with two counts of murder, first-degree assault and criminal possession of a firearm Johnson, a convicted felon with 23 previous arrests, was taken into custody without incident while he attended a probation meeting in Hartford, police said.

On Sept. 23, police responding to the area of 1164 Albany Ave. for the report of shots found found four gunshot victims.

Joshua Taylor, 31, of no known address, was pronounced dead on the scene. Police said Taylor has no Connecticut history. Jovan Wooten, 38, of New Britain, died six days later from his injuries.

The other two victims suffered non-life threatening injuries, police said. It was not clear what role they had in the shooting, or if Johnson had shot them.

With the help of surveillance video, detectives from the Major Crimes Division and Capitol City Crime Center analysts determined that Johnson was a suspect in the murders.

The shooting occurred after a verbal altercation, police said. Taylor, the intended target of the shooting, was killed by a single gunshot to the head and Wooten, who was licensed to carry a gun and was accompanied by Taylor, attempted to shoot back at Johnson, but missed and Johnson then shot him in the face, police said.

Wooten was found with the gun still in his possession.

Johnson is being held in lieu of $2 million and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Hartford on Wednesday morning.

Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call Lieutenant Paul Cicero of the Major Crimes Division at 860-757-4179, or the confidential tip line at 860-722-TIPS.
