Many in New Haven are still reeling from last week's tragic shooting death of 23 year old Mitchell Dubey. Last Thursday in an attempted robbery, a masked gunman entered Dubey's house, and ordered he and his roommates to sit down. After shooting Dubey in the chest, the gunman fled. Now one of those roommates, Andy Tabar is organizing a big music show this Sunday night at Toad's place in New Haven to raise money for the Dubey family. Andy Tabar joins us by phone.
