Shooting at Milford hotel leaves 1 dead
A man is behind bars for allegedly shooting and killing his adopted son at a Milford hotel Thursday.
Police say Tony Lee Simmons, 37, was shot in the chest by his father, 66-year-old James Street. The incident occurred at the Residence Inn on Rowe Avenue around 1 a.m. Thursday. Simmons was taken to Bridgeport Hospital, where he later died.
Police believe the man and his son got into an argument inside the hotel, and the father pulled out a gun. They say Street then called police to report the incident.

Street faces a charge of first-degree manslaughter.
