NORWALK, Conn. -- An arrest warrant has been issued for Vamond “Wooley King” Elmore in connection with the May 15 murder of Jimmy Martinez on Leonard Street in Norwalk, police said Wednesday morning. 

The warrant signed Tuesday, May 27, in Stamford Superior Court says Elmore is wanted on the charges of murder, criminal possession of a firearm, criminal use of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit and theft of a firearm.

Elmore, 37, is also currently being sought by the U.S. Marshal Service on a charge of federal violation of probation. He is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. If he is seen, call 911.

Elmore is the suspect in the murder of Martinez, 43, who was shot to death at about 2:12 a.m. May 15 in the area of 18 Leonard St. near Isaac Street, police said. 

Police received a call from a driver who reported seeing a man down. Officers found Martinez lying on the pavement near SoNo Studios and the All-In Hookah Lounge. He had been shot to death.

I really would not expect anyone to help the NPD as the residents have lost confidence in the Norwalk police Department

WOW
Hard to believe the Norwalk Police Department is bragging about 19 months without a homicide considering Norwalk had 100's of shooting in that time frame ALL UNSOLVED..I guess the Norwalk Police Department is lucky those 100's were bad shots considering they have solved ZERO of them.
Even this case still has no arrest or conviction so technically the NPD still has a perfect record of ZERO violent crime solved.
The NPD is a complete and total failure.

Its been a long time, since a shooting has taken place in a project. We can't blame the projects any longer, as you can see, they are shooting everywhere in broad daylight. Hell they are shooting right in front of the police station go figure.

"Wooley King" ?

Never anything good to say. Our PD does an EXCELLENT job given what they deal with. If we want to stop the shootings we need to start closing down the projects & stop building new low income and municipal housing. Ray Charles could see the correlation between housing projects & crime, they go hand in hand.

If only we could find something good to say about the Norwalk PD. Unfortunately its been many years since we could.

You do realize that this is about Norwalk Connecticut?? The Norwalk police department does a HORRIBLE job. They are without question the worst police department in the state.

OkThe shooting death was the fist homicide in Norwalk since October 2012. How about the 100s of shootings??? I guess they don't count to the NPD.
