Man charged in shooting at 2 CT homes
The man accused of firing at homes on a quiet Manchester Street was held on $750,000 bond following his arraignment Tuesday on reckless endangerment and gun charges, court records show.
Matthew Cardell, 28, of Manchester, was arrested after local police connected his Jeep to the shootings, according to the Hartford Courant.
Cardell is accused of firing at two homes on Oxford Street in Manchester and he confessed to a third report of gunfire that occurred on the street after being questioned about the shootings, police said.
Officers found a gun, ammunition and a list of people who he perceived had “wronged” him over years during a search of his home, police said.
He was arrested Monday and charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree stalking, third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree breach of peace.
Neighbors told the Courant that they were heartened to hear that Hartford Superior Court Judge Kathleen A. McNamara raised Cardell’s bond to $750,000 during his arraignment Tuesday. McNamara also ordered a mental health watch for Cardell while he is incarcerated, the Courant reported
