Police: 'Road rage' shooter arrested for Bridgeport murder

BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport man whom police say was justified when he shot and killed another man this weekend has been arrested in a separate murder case.

Police have charged Enton Hart in connection with the May 26 killing of Claud Jean. Authorities say they arrested Hart when they tracked another suspect in the case, Mwata Thompson, to Hart's apartment.

Hart was also involved in a shooting incident Sunday. Authorities say he shot and killed a man who mistakenly believed Hart was involved in a road rage incident earlier in the day.

Police say Jeffery Parlemon confronted Hart while wearing a mask and carrying a BB gun. Police ruled that shooting was self-defense.

Bridgeport police tell News 12 Connecticut the two incidents are not related.
