Worcester Police Investigate John St Double Shooting, Make Arrest

For Immediate Release: 4/11/2021 10:17 am

On April 10th 2021 at about 9:25 PM, Worcester Police officers were dispatched to the area of John St for a report of a ShotSpotter activation. As officers approached, they were informed that there were several calls reporting a fight and shots fired. As officers arrived on scene, they were frantically flagged down and pointed to the area where they located a thirty-four-year-old male shooting victim in a John St parking lot. Officers provided medical aid to this male, and located a second thirty-two-year-old gunshot victim nearby.

Officers aided the two gunshot victims and discovered a third male, nineteen-years-old, who appeared to have suffered some sort of blunt force trauma. The three males were transported to the hospital by ambulance and WPD detectives arrived to investigate. Officers determined that a male had taken out a firearm and shot the two victims during a physical confrontation.

A male identified as Troy Morvan, twenty-five-years-old of Litchfield St, showed up at a local hospital with injuries consistent with having been in a confrontation. Officers developed probable cause for the arrest of Mr. Morvan for two counts of Armed Assault to Murder, Use of a Firearm while Commiting a Felony, Carrying a Loaded Firearm without a License, Possession of Ammunition without an FID Card, and Discharge of a Firearm within 500 Feet of a Dwelling. Mr. Morvan did not have a license to carry firearms. He was placed under arrest and will be arraigned in court.
