WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Police say they have arrested a teen in connection with a shooting in Connecticut that killed a 20-year-old man.

Waterbury police say Jesus Bryant died Saturday after he was shot in the head Wednesday afternoon.

Police say a 15-year-old boy has acknowledged the shooting, but they have not released his name due to his age.

The teen is currently facing felony assault charges, but they will likely change following Bryant’s death.

The Republican-American reports the teen is expected to be tried as an adult in Waterbury Superior Court.
