Police responding to vehicle crash find teen shot and killed in auto

The crash happened on Thomaston Avenue on Monday evening

Police said they believe 27-year-old Dominique Pittman, of Waterbury, shot Santiago three times before crashing the vehicle the two were riding in.

Police have the murder weapon and are working to see if the gun was stolen.

Family members said Pittman has three children with Santiago's sister. "I hope she's looking down at me right now and knows that I really love her, and I wish she was here with us today".

Santiago's adoptive mother Wanda Plaza said Tuesday that she was "destroyed" from the news of her death.

"He was my son in law". He's being held on $1 million bond and is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. "I just want the truth", Rivera said.

'He was dating my daughter and he has three kids with my other daughter'.

"She was always happy, always wanted to have fun", Christy Rivera, who is the aunt of Evalyce, said. "She was just here yesterday". Grief counselors are on hand for the students at both schools.

The grandfather who raised Santiago as his own daughter said no one knew anything about the relationship.

Officers continue to investigate the incident.

"It's a awful thing that something would happen to an individual so young", Waterbury resident Robert Green said. "He looks at four walls and figures out what he did wrong", said Francisco Rivera.

The power was knocked out to around 100 homes at the time.

At the time, the auto driven by Pittman had crashed into a telephone pole along the 1700 block of Thomaston Avenue, circa 8.30pm. Eversource power crews put in temporary replacements until they can replace the entire pole. The vehicle crashed into the yard of a Waterbury, Conn. home about 10 a.m. Monday.

A GoFundMe was created to cover funeral and burial expenses for Santiago.
