A $50,000 reward offered for information in Shelton teen's death

An award of up to $50,000 is being offered by the state of Connecticut for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the killing of Kristjan Ndoj, the 15-year-old teen from Shelton who was killed in March.

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

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 on March 15.

The state’s chief medical examiner has ruled his death a homicide.

State, local police continue to investigate

In requesting the reward, Lawlor said no arrest has been made despite an active ongoing investigation by the Connecticut State Police Central District Major Crime Squad assisted by the Shelton Police Department.

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

Who to contact

Anyone with information in the case should contact the Connecticut State Police at 860-685-8190 or 800-842-0200.
