BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A 32-year-old Bridgeport man was held on $1 million bond on murder charges in connection with the Feb. 11 shooting death of a Bridgeport man after his arrest Friday by Bridgeport police and U.S. marshals, according to the CT Post.
Authorities found Bernard Brandon, along with his girlfriend, hiding in the Bridgeport apartment of a disabled man, the CT Post reports.
Brandon, whose last known address was in Bridgeport , is facing murder and criminal possession of a firearm, among other charges, in the shooting death of Javoni Patton , the city's first homicide victim of 2016, the CT Post says.
