A Stamford 21-year-old is held on $1.5 million bond after he was arrested Tuesday in connection to a late-night shooting at a car meet that left one teen dead and two other males injured Sunday night.

The shooting occurred in the parking lot of 600 West Ave., around 11 p.m., Lt. Tom Scanlon said. Investigators learned that there was a car-meet “where a dispute occurred that resulted in gunfire,” Scanlon added.

“Officers on arrival found one 33-year-old male shot in the chest who was transported by EMS to Stamford Hospital,” Scanlon said. “Two additional victims were transported to Stamford Hospital by private vehicle, one was a 17-year-old with a gun shot wound to the leg and the other was the deceased 19-year-old with gun shot wounds to the chest.”

Everett Brown, 21, was charged with first degree reckless endangerment, unlawful discharge of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit, risk of injury and carrying a dangerous weapon. He surrendered to officers after they executed a search warrant at his residence, Stamford police said. Additional charges may be presented at a later date, they added.

The 17-year-old and 33-year-old had non life-threatening injuries. There was no further updates on their status as of Wednesday night.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information should contact the Stamford Major Crimes Unit at (203) 977-4417.
