STRATFORD, CT (AP) -

A man has been charged with fatally shooting a Connecticut man over the holiday weekend.

Brandyn Ford, of Stratford, was arrested Monday and charged with murder, first-degree reckless endangerment and other offenses.

Police say Ford shot 27-year-old Andre Pettway, of Bridgeport, just before 7 p.m. Saturday in Stratford. Pettway was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say two suspects had fled the scene in a dark-colored car. Police say they later located the car, which led them to the driver and to Ford.

Ford was held on $1.5 million bail. The 24-year-old man was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. It couldn't be determined if he has an attorney.
