BRIDGEPORT - The suspect in a January murder outside of a Bridgeport club was arraigned today.

Michael Gregory, 21, has been arrested for the death of William Vargas outside Club Allure.

A second man on the street outside of the club was also shot, but he survived.

Police say Gregory was previously the victim of an attack following a high school football game in 2009 where he was beaten and shot. Police say they do not know if the incidents are connected.

The victim's family thanked police for their work as well as the two confidential witnesses who identified Gregory as the shooter.

The arrest warrant states both asked to remain nameless out of fear for their own lives.

Gregory is due back in court later this month.
