BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — A man faces multiple charges, including felony murder, in the shooting death of another man at a convenience store in Bridgeport Thursday night.

Bridgeport Police responded to the report of a person shot in Sammy’s Grocery & Dollar Store on Park Avenue at around 9:15 p.m. Officers found 23-year-old Clinton Taylor of Bridgeport with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

After a foot pursuit, officers located the suspect, 33-year-old Luis E. Morales, and took him into custody. A handgun that police believed to be the weapon used to shoot Taylor was found nearby, police said.

Morales broke his leg while fleeing and was taken to a hospital for treatment, according to police.

Once Morales was released from the hospital, police said charged him with murder, felony murder, and first-degree robbery.
