BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Police on Thursday arrested a man they say lured another man out of his home July 2, then fatally shot him from a neighboring yard.

The Fugitive Task Force arrested Richard Evans, 37, of Dogwood Drive, and charged him with murder, criminal possession of a firearm and carrying a pistol without a permit, police said.

He was held on $1 million bond.

Evidence shows Evans lured Reginald May, 44, from his Alice Street apartment by setting off a car alarm, police said. When May came out to investigate, Evans opened fire on him from another yard, police said.
