Conn. officer's pistol linked to outside shootings

New Haven Register

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — When a gun battle erupted outside Humphrey’s East bar in December, authorities had no way of knowing that one of the guns belonged to a Waterbury police sergeant.

On Wednesday, nine months later, Sgt. Harold David Setzer, 41, a 17-year veteran of the Waterbury force, was charged with seven counts of illegally transferring or selling firearms, one count for each of seven handguns he owns that he can’t account for, including a .40-caliber Sig Sauer pistol that police say was used in five shooting incidents in New Haven between December 2008 and June of this year.
