Morgan reportedly turned himself in at Meriden police station

WFSB is reporting:

The Boulder, Colo., man suspected in the fatal shooting of a 21-year-old Wesleyan University student has turned himself in to police in Meriden, sources said Thursday night.

Police in Middletown were called to pick up the suspect, 29-year-old Stephen Morgan. He was in their custody as of 10 p.m.

The Meriden Record Journal is reporting:

MERIDEN – Police have taken a man into custody and are questioning him as a suspect in Wednesday’s shooting of a Wesleyan University student.

Officers confirmed that the suspect was found in South Meriden earlier this evening and has been taken to Meriden Police Headquarters, but said the identity of the man has not been confirmed.

The Middletown Police Department sent representatives to work with police.

Johanna Justin-Jinich, 21, was shot several times Wednesday by a gunman wearing a wig at her job inside Broad Street Books, a popular student bookstore.

Police have not released any additional information at this time.

The Hartford Courant says:

Stephen Morgan called 911 Thursday night and Meriden police picked him up. He was taken to police headquarters, and then turned over to Middletown officers, who have been leading an intensive investigation into the Wednesday afternoon killing of Johanna Justin-Jinich, 21, inside a Middletown bookstore.

Meriden police declined to confirm or deny that Morgan was in custody and referred questions to Middletown police.

Police were double-checking to ensure the man they have in custody is Morgan because he had no ID on him, but he did give officers the suspect’s correct Social Security number, a law enforcement official said. Morgan told police he’d been out in the rain since the shooting.
