On the night of Sunday, October 21, New Haven police responded to 911 call reporting a shooting at the Brendan Towers Apartments at 461 Whalley Ave. and found Christian Anderson Garcia.

The 26-year-old man had been shot inside one of the building’s common hallways and was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
Now, more than six months later, police have arrested a suspect.

Minutes after police found Garcia, Rashid Johnson, 20, was admitted to the emergency department of the Saint Raphael's campus of Yale-New Haven Hospital.

He'd been shot in the leg and had been listed in stable condition, police said.

Last week, a judge signed an arrest warrant charging Johnson with Garcia’s murder. He was taken into custody on Monday.

Police will hold a news conference on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. at police headquarters with police officials,  detectives and parents and family members of the victim.
