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.
