HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -
A 25-year-old man was arrested in connection of the shooting death of an East Hartford man outside a popular nightclub in Hartford over a spilled drink.
Miguel Delgado, 21, was shot outside Up or on the Rocks on Aug. 30, police said. Police said it appears the shooting occurred after a disturbance that started inside the nightclub and spilled outside.
"To actually be there and to see people reacting, and all the craziness was hard, it was hard," said eyewitness Nelanie Colon.
Delgado was rushed to St. Francis Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
On Tuesday, Angel Morales, of New Haven, was the suspected gunman.
Morales was charged with murder and criminal possession of a firearm and is being held on $1 million bond.
Friends and family gathered for a vigil for Delgado near Up or on the Rocks Tuesday night.
The shooting of Delgado was the second at the nightclub this month. Brian Simpe, 19, of Manchester, was shot and killed outside the club Aug. 4. Simpe's alleged killer, 23-year-old Mike Cruz, was caught in Florida while on a Disney vacation.
Up or on the Rocks was shut down on Aug. 30 and remains closed at this point.
"The chief [James C. Rovella] is instituting an ordinance 29-17 a mandatory hiring of police officers," said Hartford police Lt. Brain Foley.
This decision all has to do with a meeting Tuesday with Rovella, the state liquor commission and the owner of Up or on the Rocks.
The owner is not sure if he will do that, decide to close, according to police.
Sources told Eyewitness News the night of the latest shooting there were roughly a dozen security people inside the club and nine police within earshot of the shooting outside
Police said in both instances the club was hosting an underage night.
Right now, there are laws allowing 18 and over nights, but the mayor will be talking with state officials to see if those laws could be changed.
"How does the last two shootings make you feel even though they have caught the people, who did this allegedly, I'm pretty sure a lot of people don't want to go out, more often than not," Colon said.
