A 36-year-old man shot inside a Manchester restaurant this weekend died on New Year's Eve, police said.

Police said East Hartford resident Norris Jackson died at Hartford Hospital on Sunday after he was shot inside Bonchon Restaurant on Pleasant Valley Road on Saturday afternoon.

Investigators were looking for 28-year-old James Goolsby and 23-year-old Leanne Robitaille in connection with the deadly Manchester shooting.

On Tuesday night, Manchester police confirmed that they were in police custody.

Police said they were both arrested on Tuesday, both in Hartford.

Goolsby was charged with murder and is being held on a $1 million bond. Robitaille was charged with hindering prosecution and is being held on a $100,000 bond.

They are both expected to appear in court on Wednesday.

Police were called to the restaurant where Jackson, Goolsby and Robitaille all worked, just after opening in the busy Plaza at Buckland Hills around 11:45 a.m. on Saturday.

Barbara Turner, the mother of Norris Jackson, said one of his kidneys has already been used to help a 49-year-old man. Another kidney was to be used and other organs being donated to help others, Turner said.

Turner said her son should be remembered as a family man.
