Police continue search for man wanted in Meriden shooting


MERIDEN — Police released details Wednesday about a shooting on Colony Street more than a month ago that left one man wounded while detectives continue to look for the shooter.

On Oct. 11, a man was shot outside of Angelina Grocery, 103 Colony St., after a dispute with the clerk, said Sgt. Darrin McKay, police spokesman. The victim, who was shot in the left shoulder, was treated at MidState Medical Center for his injury, which McKay said was “nothing life threatening at all.”

While the victim, whom the clerk knew, was inside the store with the clerk, the two got into “some type of confrontation” about 9:30 p.m., McKay said. The clerk pulled out a handgun and shot the victim. The shooter was identified as Jose Saez, 32, whose last known residence was in New Haven, McKay said.

Police did not release information until talking with a woman who was inside the store. She spoke with police shortly after her picture was posted on media outlets, including the Record-Journal, earlier this month.

Since speaking with the woman, police have obtained an arrest warrant for Saez, who is believed to be a family member of the store owner.

McKay stressed that the incident was not a random act of violence and that the two men had been in a dispute before the shooting.
