BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — A Bridgeport man faces multiple charges, including murder, for his alleged involvement in a homicide that occurred in Bridgeport back in March.

Following a six-month investigation, Bridgeport Police obtained an arrest warrant Wednesday for Eric Ayala, 22, in connection with the shooting death of Gregory Ingram, 33, on Seaview Avenue on March 13.

Investigators said Ingram was not the intended target. The fatal shots were fired through the door of his apartment and are believed to have been intended for a previous resident. Ayala did not know the intended target had moved out, police said.

Ayala is currently incarcerated on unrelated charges, according to police.

He is expected to appear in Bridgeport court Friday to face charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, criminal possession of a firearm, and carrying a pistol without a firearm.

Ayala’s bond is set at $1 million.
