One year later: State offers $50,000 reward in Shelton shooting death

State Police officials are reiterating there is a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator in the March 2014 shooting death of Shelton teen Kristjan Ndoj.

State Police detectives are asking anyone who has any information that may assist in the investigation to contact them at 800-842-0200 or 860-685-8190. All calls will be kept confidential, State Police officials said.

The $50,000 reward, which is the maximum allowed under state law, was authorized last summer by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy at the request of Kevin D. Lawlor, state’s attorney for the Judicial District of Ansonia/Milford that covers Shelton.

“I want to thank the governor for approving our request for a reward,” Lawlor said at the time. “Hopefully, this will generate information that will lead to the arrest and successful prosecution of whoever committed this horrific crime.”

Kristjan died on March 20, as a result of the injuries he received when he was shot in the driveway of a friend’s home at 1 Agawam Trail five days earlier. Agawam Trail is a road in Shelton’s Pine Rock Park neighborhood, which is in lower Shelton near Route 110 and Long Hill Avenue.

Investigation is still active

As the first anniversary of the shooting approaches, the State Police’s Central District Major Crime Squad detectives continue to actively work on the Kristjan Ndoj homicide investigation.

Kristjan was 15 years old at the time of his death and a sophomore at Shelton High School.

The State Medical Examiner’s Office, after conducting a post-mortem examination, ruled the death to be a homicide.

State Police detectives, assisted by the Shelton Police Department, have continued to follow all leads and all information in this homicide investigation, according to a March 13 State Police press release. Detectives have interviewed witnesses and examined physical and forensic evidence.

The case remains under investigation by the State Police, emphasized the release.
