David Anderson is the suspected getaway driver in a Bridgeport homicide.
Bridgeport police have arrested the suspected getaway driver in a fatal shooting on Sept. 10.
Five people were shot in bright daylight along Reservoir Avenue that Tuesday afternoon.
Police said David Anderson, 20, of Bridgeport, drove two people to the site, waited in the car and drove the suspects back to the city’s East Side after the shooting.
Christopher Pettway, 26, of Bridgeport, was killed in the shooting and four teenage boys were wounded but are expected to recover.
Police have not identified the other victims, but said they range in age from 15 to 19.
Detective Ada Curet secured an arrest warrant for Anderson on Wednesday evening and he was taken into custody, where he acknowledged his role in the incident, police said.
Anderson was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and his bond was set at $1 million.
This is the second arrest police have made in the case.
Last week, detectives arrested Roderick “Riki” Rogers and charged him with murder, four counts of attempted murder, four counts of first-degree assault and weapons offenses.
Police continue to investigate, but believe the shooting is connected to a previous dispute involving Rogers, who is known to frequent Stratford Avenue and is known to police.
