A former Public Works employee who was described as a threat to the work environment was charged with murder on Monday.
CT Post reporter Dan Tepfer has more:
Police said Victor Arroyo, 22, fatally shot 57-year-old Philip Ingram on Feb. 14 after Ingram went looking for him following a dispute in the East Side. Arroyo was also charged with carrying a pistol without a permit.
Arroyo was already awaiting trial on several charges–including interfering with an officer–after he was stopped near City Hall in September because he fit the description of a suspect who hit his unidentified relative while at the city building, according to the police report.
The arrest came to light just days after Hearst Connecticut Media reported that the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, or AFSCME labor union, sent a letter to then-Public Facilities Director John Ricci claiming Arroyo posed “a threat to the work environment.”
Ricci, who has since retired, had brought Arroyo back to work last spring before the young man was out for most of the summer with an unspecified medical issue. Arroyo returned in September, the union said.
