The suspect in a fatal shooting in Waterbury who was found in Florida has been brought back to Connecticut, according to Waterbury police.

Ramon Ocasio, 35, has been charged with murder, criminal use of weapon, carrying a pistol without a permit and illegal discharge of firearm in the death of 49-year-old William Charles David, who was shot in the head on July 13.

Police said day officers were called to the area of 20 John St. around 3:51 p.m. on July 13 for a report of gunfire and found David in the driveway, dead of a gunshot wound to the head.

Investigators found a handgun at the scene. Police said they found several cartridge casings in the driveway but those were of a different caliber than the handgun.

Police coordinated with the other agencies to bring Ocasio back to Connecticut. He was being held on a $2 million bond.

Bond has now been set at $1.5 million.
