Bridgeport man facing gun charges in Stratford

Stratford police say a Bridgeport man has been arrested for carrying a gun without a permit.



Police arrested Jaqhan Potts, 21, on June 27.



They say officers spotted Potts walking on Larkin Court and stopped to speak with him about a drive-by shooting that happened in March.



Investigators say they identified Potts as an associate of the victim in that shooting.



Police say one of the officers saw a handgun partially sticking out of Potts' pocket so officers took the weapon and took Potts into custody.
