BRIDGEPORT - The second man wanted in connection with the murder of a Bridgeport store owner earlier this month is expected in court today.

Treizy Lopez, 18, goes before a judge today in connection to the fatal shooting of a grocery store owner. Police say they arrested Lopez at a home in West Haven on Monday after he was on the run for more than two weeks. 

They say Lopez and Leighton Vanderberg, 23, walked into Sapiao's Grocery earlier this month, demanded money, and then shot and killed the owner Jose Salgado. 

Officials say both Vanderberg and Lopez are now charged with murder.
