Police still searching for alleged killer
NEW HAVEN — Police are continuing to search for a 38-year-old man wanted for allegedly killing a 27-year-old man and wounding his mother in their home last week.
Police have had several reported sightings of Darryl Staton, of County Street, but so far none has panned out.
Staton is wanted for the Feb. 11 fatal shooting of Enrique Lawrence, 27 in a Munson Street home. The victim’s mother, Linda Lawrence, 52, a teacher’s aid, also was wounded.
Both were shot in the head.

He is charged with murder, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree assault, first-degree robbery, second-degree larceny and gun charges.
He is described as a black male, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 180 lbs.
