Pharoh Jackson – Hamden homicide

HAMDEN — Pharoh Jackson was arrested Friday in connection with a deadly gas station shooting.

Police said they responded to the Express Fuel gas station on Dixwell Avenue on December 28 after receiving a call about a gunshot victim.

The victim, identified as 35-year-old Corey Gomes, was found by police and taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said that Jackson, 20, of New Haven, tried to rob Gomes, and a fight broke out between them. Jackson fired several rounds into Gomes, before running to a car with what police said had at least one other person inside it.

Jackson was charged with Murder and first degree Robbery. He is scheduled to appear in court January 6.
