BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police have made an arrest in a murder that happened last February.

After a two-month investigation, police arrested 32-year-old Bernard Brandon for shooting 28-year-old Javoni Patton near the intersection of Stratford and Connecticut avenues. The incident was due to an argument over money, investigators say.

Officers say they located Brandon on the west side of the city with the cooperation of several law enforcement agencies.

He is being held on $1,000,000 bond and is set to go before a judge on Monday.
