Reward for Fisher information raised

Hoping to jumpstart a slowing investigation, Mark Fisher’s parents have raised the reward for information leading to the arrest of the gunman who shot their son to $100,000 on Monday, the New York Post reported.

Originally, a $30,000 award was announced, with the city contributing a third of it. The lawyer for Fisher’s parents, Darren DelSardo told the New York Post that the Fishers are sending a message that “they will not stop searching for Mark’s killer until he is apprehended.”

Fisher, who was a sophomore at Fairfield University, was shot early on Oct. 12 after spending the night with friends in New York City.

Police have focused on the group of young men and women who stayed in the Stratford house that night, but claim they will not fully cooperate. Because of this, the investigation has remained stalled.

Those who have information about the Fisher case are encouraged to call 800-577-TIPS, case code BK 622.

Former student charged with assault

Former Fairfield University student Jeff Gomulinski, now a junior at Boston College, was arrested Sunday and charged with domestic assault and battery and kidnapping after holding a woman in his room against her will for several hours, according to the Boston Globe.

The former punter has been suspended from the college and the football team indefinitely and is now subject to random Breathalyzer tests and must report to a probation officer once a week.

The 18-year-old woman, an apparent girlfriend of Gomulinksi’s, told police she had entered his dorm room early Sunday morning and he forcibly restrained her for several hours. She managed to escape and ran to her car as Gomulinski followed.

Campus police arrived on the scene at 6:50 a.m. and found him yelling at the woman, who had locked herself in her car. He was arrested and then transferred to the Boston police. A pretrial hearing has been set for May 4, the Globe reported.
