NORWALK - Police have unsealed the arrest warrant for a suspect in a fatal gas station shooting, and it states the suspect shot the man so he wouldn?t call police. Alain Leconte is accused of killing Juaquin Morales at a Norwalk gas station during a robbery more than a year ago.
The document says "After robbing the store, Leconte shot the attendant in the head in an effort to 'buy me some time to get away'. Leconte allegedly said that he feared the attendant would call the police on his cell phone."
The warrant also notes a conversation Leconte allegedly had with a friend after the robbery and shooting, and boasted about the crime.
The Morales family says although the details in the warrant won't bring more closure, the new information does give them a sense of relief.
