Police in Bridgeport have arrested a suspect in a murder from earlier this month.

They say they observed 33-year-old Dean Burdell walking into an apartment at the P.T. Barnum housing complex Tuesday evening.

Detectives forced their way into the apartment, where several people scattered in an attempt to destroy narcotics, they said.

Six people were arrested, including Burdell.

He’s charged in the killing of Marquis Jacobs on June 9th.

Detectives say Burdell confessed to the killing during questioning at headquarters.
