DANBURY, Conn. — A teenager girl is now the fourth person to be arrested in connection with the murder of an 18-year-old man earlier this month in Danbury, police said.
The juvenile female turned herself in to the Danbury Police Department on an active arrest warrant at 4:45 a.m. Wednesday, police said.
"The warrant was a result of the investigation into the homicide of Gabriel Bara-Bardo," who died of blunt impact to the head and neck, police said. All four people charged in the crime are juveniles, police said.
The girl, who was not identified because of her age, was charged with second-degree robbery, criminal liability for second-degree robbery, conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery, fifth-degree larceny, criminal liability for fifth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit fifth-degree larceny, first-degree reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
The juvenile female was transported to Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.
The investigation is still ongoing into the death of Bara-Bardo, police said.
On Wednesday morning, a juvenile male was also arrested in the case, police said. He was charged with second-degree robbery, fifth-degree larceny, two counts of conspiracy to commit the two earlier charges and two counts of criminal liability. He was then transported to Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.
Two other teens were arrested earlier this month and charged with felony murder in the case. Ronald Massagli, 15, was arrested Aug. 16, and Lorenzo Santana, 16, was arrested Aug 17. Both also face charges of robbery, larceny and criminal mischief in the case. Both were held at the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.
At 5:45 p.m. Aug. 5, several officers were dispatched on a report of suspicious activity on Abbott Street.
Upon arrival, officers found Bara-Bardo, alone and unconscious in the roadway next to his vehicle, police said.
Bara-Bardo, an 18-year-old Danbury resident, never regained consciousness and died of his injuries.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled the cause of death was complications from blunt impact to the head and neck. The manner of death was homicide.
