The Hartford Courant NEW HAVEN



A would-be mugger who was shot Monday afternoon when he attempted to rob a man armed with a gun has been identified as a 40-year-old from New Haven.


Hector Santiago was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. He was in fair condition Tuesday.


The man who shot him was identified as William Kiselewsky, 65, of Southbury.


He was eating lunch on a park bench about 1 p.m. near St. Michael's Church on Wooster Place when Santiago approached him.


"Give me all your money or I'll stab you," Santiago, who was armed with a knife, allegedly said to Kiselewsky, police said. He backed Kiselewsky up against a fence, then Kiselewsky pulled out a gun and fired, police said. Police said Kiselewsky was licensed to carry his firearm. He was questioned and released.


Witnesses told police they saw a struggle between the two men and heard gunshots.
