Bridgeport PD: Two men charged in connection to fatal shooting on Pembroke Street


BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — Two men have been arrested in connection to a fatal shooting that happened in the area of Pembroke Street earlier this month.

Bridgeport Police responded to the area around 4:15 a.m. on Oct. 2 for reports of shots fired. Soon after, Bridgeport Hospital notified officials of a gunshot wound victim seeking treatment. Police said the victim was suffering from a gunshot wound to the head and succumbed to his injuries.

An investigation revealed the victim was fatally shot during an altercation outside the VIP Longue at 1086 Pembroke Street. Police identified the victim as 29-year-old Jonathan DaSilva.

On Oct. 21, police arrested Robert Sorrells, 27, of Bridgeport for shooting and killing DaSilva. Sorrells was charged with murder, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of weapons in a motor vehicle. Sorrells was held on a $2,000,000 bond and appeared in court on Oct. 22.

On Monday, police arrested Kadeem Frazer, 38, of Bridgeport for his role in the murder.

Police say allegedly, Sorrells fired the shots that killed DaSilva from the passenger seat of Frazer’s car as he drove. Later that day, Frazer reported his car stolen. The next day, Frazer’s car was located in Woodbridge after it was set on fire, according to police.

Frazer was charged with accessory at murder and arson in the second degree. He is being held on a $2,000,000 bond and will appear in court tomorrow.
