BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Connecticut police have made an arrest in a fatal shooting they say stemmed from a dispute between two movers.

The Connecticut Post ( ) reports that Richard “Steve” Evans, of Bridgeport, surrendered to police Thursday after being told there was a warrant for his arrest. He was charged with murder and firearms offenses and held on $1 million bond.

Bridgeport police say the 37-year-old Evans killed 44-year-old Reginald May on July 2 in front of May’s apartment.

Police say Evans works for a moving company and had hired May for a job that took them to Virginia in June. They got into a dispute over money there and May punched Evans. Witnesses told police that Evans promised retaliation.

Evans’ lawyer confirmed that his client had been arrested but declined further comment.
