FAIRFIELD - An 18-year-old man is behind bars in Fairfield for allegedly carrying an illegal, loaded gun.

Markis Jean-Rene, of Bridgeport, was arrested early yesterday in the commuter parking lot on Johnson Drive.

Investigators say Jean-Rene was in a parked car with a woman and the officer could smell marijuana.

During a pat down, police say they discovered a pistol with the safety off and five rounds in the gun.
