The names of all three involved have not been officially confirmed by police but town tax records list Richard and Jean Fletcher as the owners of 55 Brook Lane.
"My mom moved here from New Haven when we were little to get away from this stuff," said Chris Baiocchi, who grew up on Brook Lane. "She wanted to move us somewhere safe and to have a homicide happen on your street is uncomfortable, it really doesn’t make you feel secure."
The 72-year-old father was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital and is now listed in fair condition, according to hospital officials.
