A 19-year-old man was shot to death in New Haven on the same street where a 29-year-old man was killed last month.

Police say Robert Cirino of New Haven was shot at least twice as he hung on out a porch on Frank Street.

Witnesses told police a man approached Cirino, asked "What's up?", then pulled out a handgun and opened fire when Cirino responded with the same greeting.

The man fled on foot. Police hadn't made an arrest in the case as of early Saturday evening.

On May 4, 29-year-old Nathan Richardson was also shot to death on Frank Street. No arrest has been made in that killing

Police wouldn't comment to The New Haven Register (http://bit.ly/KrPkkE) whether they suspect a link between the shootings.

It's New Haven's seventh homicide this year.
