He's being charged with first-degree robbery, criminal possession of a firearm, first-degree larceny, criminal attempted murder and first-degree attempted assault on a police officer.
Police say Lynch also has an active domestic violence arrest warrant in New Haven. He's also been prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a robbery conviction from 2015.
