BRIDGEPORT -

A second arrest has been made in the fatal shooting of a Connecticut barber.

Police say 30-year-old Jordan Hinton was arrested in New York, and brought back to Connecticut to face murder and other charges in connection to the October 2017 shooting of Deon Rodney. 

Police say Hinton and a co-defendant tried to rob a man outside the Just Right Cutz barbershop in Bridgeport, but the intended victim fled inside. Police say Hinton followed with his gun drawn. 

Rodney, who had just finished cutting a young boy's hair, tackled Hinton and was shot by Hinton's partner, investigators say.
