2nd Suspect in Death of Teen in Bridgeport

Police said they have a second suspect in the homicide of 14-year-old Bridgeport boy who was killed on Christmas Eve and the person is in police custody on drug charges. 

City officials have not identified the suspect and charges in connection with this case are pending.

Twenty-three year old Michael Majors was previously charged with the murder of Luis Colon, 14, who police believe was caught in the crossfire between two groups during a drug-related shootout.

Police found Colon and 17-year-old Trey Kaiser when they responded to the area of 1160 State Street in Bridgeport for reports of a shooting. 

Bridgeport Police Captain A.J. Perez said Colon, was shot in the chest and died of his injuries at St. Vincent's Hospital. Kaiser was shot in the hand and leg and his injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Surveillance video showed a group of people outside Stylz Barber Shop.
