NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– A man has died after he was shot multiple times in New Haven, early Thursday morning.

The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m.  at an apartment complex on Cherry Ann Street. When officers responded to the scene, they found that the victim, 30-year-old Dyrail Martaye Reddick, of New Haven, had been shot multiple times.

Reddick was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital where he died from his injuries.  Police believe that Reddick was shot following a dispute in the parking lot of the apartment complex at 112 Cherry Ann Street.

Officers from the Southern Connecticut State University Campus Police spotted a red Accura that was believed to have been involved. That car fled from police and crashed into a tree on Whalley Avenue at Whittlsey Street. Two of the car’s occupants then fled on foot, but one was detained by police.

That car and another found car that was parked at the Slice Pizza Restaurant in Hamden, have been towed by police to undergo forensic processing. The involvement of those cars in this case is unclear at this time.

Police say they used gun detection technology to locate the gunfire which pinpointed Cherry Ann Street.

Police are still searching for the suspect at this time. Anyone who witnessed the shooting or who has any information is urged to contact police at 203-946-6304.

The incident remains under investigation.
