Bridgeport police have arrested two men accused of a shooting that killed Gary Gullap, 17, and wounded a second person in August.
Gullap and the second victim were shot while walking on Hallett Street near Ogden Street during the late afternoon of Aug. 2.
Police secured an arrest warrant last week charging Tysaaun Anderson, 18, with murder and had been searching for him.
On Thursday, Sgt. Pasquale Feola saw Anderson walking in the area of the Beardsley Terrace Apartments and arrested him, police said.
The second suspect, Kyle Brodie, 18, is incarcerated at the Manson Youth facility and was charged on Friday morning with the homicide. Bonds for both were set at $1 million.
Anderson was scheduled to be in court on Friday morning for an arraignment.
“It’s a heinous crime and these are two very violent individuals,” Police Chief Joseph Gaudett Jr. said in a news release. “The message to these gang members has to be if you are going to commit these violent crimes you’re going to jail for a very long time.”
Police said patrol officers found the suspects’ van abandoned in the Green Homes minutes after the shooting.
The homicide was the city’s 15th of the year and additional arrests are anticipated in the case.
