Authorities have arrested the man accused of shooting and killing a 27-year-old Bridgeport resident over the summer.
Jose Manuel Torres, 36, was arrested this morning in New York in connection with the fatal shooting of Pablo Aquino on July 24. Torres was identified as a suspect immediately following the homicide and was considered armed and dangerous.
The shooting happened near Aquino’s residence on Pixlee Place in the Mill Street section of the city. Police said Aquino was shot less than 100 yards from the Hall School, an elementary school on Clermont Avenue.
He was taken to Bridgeport Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said the U.S. Marshals took Torres into custody this morning.
