Family of man slain in Bridgeport heartbroken by his death
The family of a New Haven man who was fatally shot in Bridgeport is calling on their loved one's killer to come forward.
As News 12 has reported, 43-year-old Lawane Toles was found shot to death near Wentfield Park around 9:30 p.m. on May 24.
His family described him as a kind-hearted person who was very giving and caring.
Toles' mother, Sondra, says her son worked for the City of New Haven Sanitation Department, and was in the process of making a career change into the field of health care when his life was cut tragically short.
She says Toles was a gifted singer who was well-known in the community for being a peaceful man devoted to his family.
His death marked the city's 12th homicide of the year.
Anyone with information is asked to call 203-576-TIPS.
