BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ Bridgeport police have made an arrest in connection with the shooting death in January of a city man outside a nightclub.

A department spokesman says 21-year-old Michael Gregory was apprehended at his apartment on Tuesday.

The spokesman tells The Connecticut Post that Gregory is charged with murder, first-degree assault and first-degree reckless endangerment in connection with the Jan. 22 death of 24-year-old William Vargas.

Vargas was shot in the head while sitting in a car outside Club Allure.

A second man on the street outside the club was shot in the right pelvis. He survived.

Williams’ death was the city’s first homicide of the year. Authorities have not released a possible motive.

It was not clear of Gregory had hired a lawyer.
