HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — The State is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information that leads to an arrest in connection with a 2009 shooting in Hartford.

Police are trying to develop new leads in the death of Timothy Coleman, who was shot to death in Hartford on September 2, 2009. The reward was authorized by Governor Dannel P. Malloy at the request of Gail P. Hardy, State’s Attorney for the Judicial District of Hartford.

Coleman, 38, suffered multiple gunshot wounds in the area of 102 Edgewood Street in Hartford. He was rushed to the hospital, but died later that evening from his wounds.

An investigation by the Hartford Police Department has not developed sufficient information to make an arrest. Investigators feel that the reward may lead to a successful conclusion of their investigation.
