    Police are investigating after a 46-year-old man was shot and killed in Stamford's first homicide of the year Thursday night.

    Stamford police have charged a 20-year-old with the city's first murder of the year.

    Andre Quinn Russell was arrested on Thursday after police obtained a warrant for him.  Officers waited for Russell to come out of his Ludlow Street home and took him into custody.

    Russell is accused of walking up behind William James around 8:30 p.m. on June 5 and shooting James in the head and ran off on Ludlow Street.

    James died at Stamford Hospital a short time later.

    Police said they believe the shooting was over an argument about drugs and that Russell believed James was selling drugs on his side of the street.
