MIDDLETOWN, CT (WFSB) -

Bail has been set at $1.5 million for the man arrested after a robbery, police chase and shootout last week.

Sebastian Award, 24, is facing 20 charges including attempted murder and robbery even though his attorney said his client never fired a single shot.

Police said he and Jonathan Alvarado robbed a Days Inn in Old Saybrook last week, and then led police on a chase that ended in Westbrook.

It all ended in a crash, and gunfire erupted shortly after.

Alvarado was shot and killed.

Award and Connecticut State Police Det. Scott Wisner were both injured but survived.
