DANBURY — A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday to discuss unsealing court files related to last month’s fatal shooting of a Danbury teen.

Police announced late Friday last week they have arrested a second teen in connection with the fatal shooting of Yhameek Johnson.

The 17-year-old Stratford, who police did not identify because he is a juvenile, is facing charges of first-degree larceny, tampering with physical evidence, hindering prosecution and interfering with police. He was released on a juvenile summons, according to police.

The larceny charge stems from a motor vehicle theft, according to police.

Police had already charged 17-year-old Elvis Agramonte with Johnson’s murder. The case is being heard in adult court. Police said his identity was released to the public due to the severity of the charges he is facing.

Court files in Agramonte’s case remain at least temporarily sealed. The hearing to discuss the sealing order is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

Agramonte, a Danbury resident, is also facing charges of criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault, risk of injury to a minor, carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying weapons in a vehicle, first-degree reckless endangerment and illegal possession of a number plate.

He remains in custody on $1 million bond.

Danbury police Detective Lt. Mark Williams said Monday he does not anticipate more arrests in connection with the June 20 shooting, but “it's not a certainty.”

Because court documents have been sealed, the motive for the shooting has not been made public.

Authorities were alerted to the drive-by shooting around 8 p.m. on June 20.

Danbury police said they received multiple 911 calls for gunfire on Mill Ridge Road. When they arrived at the scene near Mill Ridge Drive, they found Johnson, 18, being cared for by residents.

He was taken to Danbury Hospital where he died from his injuries.

Police have said they believe a dark-colored SUV with New York plates was used in the shooting.
