Man injured in shooting facing charges in separate shooting

WATERBURY — Police say a man who was injured in a shooting in Connecticut is facing charges in connection to another shooting last year.

The Republican-American reports that 40-year-old Jessie Gray suffered multiple gunshot wounds in a shooting in Waterbury around 11 a.m. Monday.

Gray is expected to survive his injuries, and a search for the suspect is ongoing.

Records show Gray was arrested in November 2017 after a shooting inside a bar in Meriden. Police say he fired multiple shots inside Red Room Grille, injuring another man.

Gray is facing a first-degree assault charge in connection with the shooting. It is unclear if the two shootings are related.
