BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police say they have made an arrest in a murder from last summer.

Police say 36-year-old Jose Manuel Torres shot his neighbor Pablo Aquino in July on Pixlee Place after a dispute. They say they've had a warrant out for Torres' arrest for the last seven months. U.S marshals found him in New York City Tuesday morning.

Prosecutors will bring him back to Connecticut to face charges once he completes the extradition process.

Aquino's family gathered at his gravesite and released balloons in his honor.

Aquino's fiancee says she was not expecting an arrest to be made Tuesday and that she was overcome by the news. She says Aquino was a loving person and a wonderful father of two who was battling cancer when he was shot and killed.
