Troopers arrested Jesus Perez, 37, of Hartford Monday night on attempted murder, first-degree assault, first-degree robbery, criminal possession of a firearm, and evidence-tampering charges.

It was on April 20 that firefighter Jimmy Ngo was shot multiple times at the Belamose Business Park in Rocky Hill. Police haven’t discussed a motive in the case, but now say their investigation has been completed.

Perez was held on $750,000 bond pending arraignment Wednesday at New Britain Superior Court.
