Jacob Craggett funeral scheduled

Lisa Craggett had been operating on seven hours of sleep since Friday night when her son Jacob Craggett, 15, was shot and killed and her other son Joshua Craggett was critically wounded.

She got back from visiting Joshua at Yale-New Haven Hospital, which is around the corner from Friday night's shooting scene and near her mother and sister's house Tuesday afternoon. She was eager to tell Jacob's story.

She said she would recall Jacob Craggett as an average 15-year-old who was heavily interested in football and someone who his friends could count on as a mentor when they needed advice. He played defensive tackle at Hillhouse High School.

Jacob Craggett's funeral is Saturday August 16 at Christian Tabernacle Baptist Church at 425 Newhall Street in Hamden, just over the New Haven border. Viewing will take place between 9 and 11 a.m. with the funeral to follow from approximately 11 to 1 p.m.

Lisa Craggett urged anyone with information about the shooting to call police, even if they think the information is just rumor or hearsay. Its up to the detectives to sort out truth from fiction, she said. The number for detectives is 203-946-6316.

Friday night's shooting stirred up memories of when Jacob and Joshua's cousin Jason Craggett, 22, was shot and killed at the front step of the family home in 2004.
