Man charged in fatal shooting of 3-year-old boy in Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A 19-year-old man has been charged with murder in connection with the shooting of a 3-year-old Connecticut boy whose death dismayed the community and prompted state lawmakers to call for more anti-violence funding. Hartford police say they arrested city resident Jaziah Smith on Monday for the killing of Randell Jones in a drive-by shooting April 10. A message was left for the public defenders' office. The arrest came on the same day of Randell's memorial service. Hartford police say the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy two hours later was related to the killing of Randell, who was an unintended victim of the drive-by.
