Stamford double murder suspect appears in court

STAMFORD - A Norwalk man who police say fired a gun at one of the two men killed last month in a shootout in Stamford appeared in court this morning.

State troopers had been on the hunt for Lamar Taylor, 23, before he turned himself in yesterday morning.

Police say they don't believe that Taylor's bullet struck either of the men in the shootout outside of the Southwood Square housing complex.

Taylor is facing weapons charges and attempted first-degree assault. He is being held on $300,000 bond and is expected back in court on Oct. 18.

Police say they have another man in custody in connection with the murders.
