The two suspects arrested on charges stemming from last month's shooting at the Wolcott Woods Condominiums are scheduled to return to court next week.

Simsbury Police Department arrested Jevon Collins, 28, of 19 Harper St., Hartford, on June 18, for his involvement in an armed robbery and non-fatal shooting that occurred on May 19, at the Wolcott Woods Condominiums. Collins was charged with accessory to first-degree assault, conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery and first-degree threatening. Collins is being held on $250,000. 

Last week, Simsbury Police, with the assistance of the Hartford Police Shooting Task Force, arrested Alexander Rivera, 20, of 99 Atwood St., Hartford. Rivera was arrested June 9, on charges of first-degree assault, conspiracy to commit first-degree assault, first-degree robbery, first-degree threatening, third-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny. Rivera, whose bond was set at $500,000, remains in custody.

The arrests stem from a shooting reported about 11:30 p.m. May 19 in the parking lot in front of 47, 49 and 53 Wolcott Woods. Officers found a 20-year-old male — who wasn't a resident of the complex, suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body area. 

According to Connecticut Judicial Branch website records, both Collins and Rivera are scheduled to return court on June 24 to enter pleas. Collins will appear in state Superior Court in Enfield, while Rivera is scheduled to appear in court in Hartford.
