1 dead, 1 wounded after assault; CT police search for suspect


WILLINGTON — Police continue to search for a suspect who is allegedly “armed and dangerous” after he killed one man and wounded another during an assault with an “edged weapon” Friday morning, Connecticut State Police said.

Just after 9 a.m., troopers from Troop C responded to an incident on Mirtl Road to find two victims — both elderly men — suffering from injuries after an assault, state police said.

One victim, identified by police as 62-year-old Willington resident Theodore Demers, later died from his injuries.

Connecticut State Police Detectives from the Eastern District Major Crime Squad responded to Mirtl Road to establish a perimeter around the scene and investigate.

Police have been on the hunt for the person responsible throughout the morning and into the late afternoon. He remains at large.

The suspect was described by police as a male wearing dark clothes and a multi-colored — possibly red and white — helmet. He was driving a red sport-style motorcycle.

Anyone who sees the suspect is asked to call 911 immediately. Do not approach the suspect.
