Connecticut Police have apprehended a St. Johnsbury drug and shooting suspect on a murder charge after being released from Caledonia Superior Court in 2021. Paul L. Downer, 25, is now being held on $2 million bail in Connecticut for allegedly taking part in the murder of Michael Starks, 29, in April at a grocery store in Hartford, Conn. He was eventually located at a residence outside of Hartford on April 22. Authorities say surveillance video showed Starks was targeted by four masked individuals who shot him multiple times. Starks later died at a Connecticut hospital. Downer was also charged with shooting Ryan C. Farnham, 29, in an apartment at 243 Lafayette Street in St. Johnsbury.
