The state announced today that a reward of up to $50,000 will be given to people with information leading to an arrest and conviction in the murder of Kristjan Ndoj, 15, of Shelton, who was shot May 15 in the driveway of friend’s home.

The $50,000 reward is the maximum allowed under state law and was approved by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy at the request of Kevin D. Lawlor, State’s Attorney for the Judicial District of Ansonia-Milford.

“I want to thank the Governor for approving our request for a reward. Hopefully, this will generate information that will lead to the arrest and successful prosecution of whoever committed this horrific crime,” Lawlor said in a statement. The youth died on March 20. The shooting is under investigation by the Connecticut State Police Central District Major Crime Squad assisted by the Shelton Police Department.

Information in the case should be given to the State Police at 860 685 8190 or 1-800-842-0200.
