Waterbury police and U.S. Marshals are looking for a suspect in last weekend’s fatal shooting on Willow Street.  Danny Gonzalez was apparently driving northbound on Willow when he was shot by a passenger in the back seat of the vehicle.  Police have obtained an arrest warrant for 24-year-old Luis Colon Ortega, charging him with murder and conspiracy in Gonzalez’s death. They believe Ortega,  who has a criminal history in Puerto Rico,  and was released from prison there six months ago,  may be headed back to Puerto Rico.

They’ve released Ortega’s mugshot, and ask that anyone with any information on his whereabouts call Crimestoppers at (203) 755-1234.

Police say they expect to charge a second person as an accomplice.
