A Jamaican teen is facing murder charges stemming from the fatal drive-by shooting of a 12-year-old Connecticut boy killed outside his home.

Bridgeport Police Chief Armando Perez confirmed Monday to the Connecticut Post that 18-year-old Tajay Chambers has been charged with murder with special circumstances, carrying a pistol without a permit, second-degree larceny and risk of injury to a child.


Perez says three juveniles will also be charged in connection with the December 18 shooting of Clinton Howell, described as a bystander.


Chambers has been in custody since December 19 for an October alleged assault. A judge held him on US$500,000 bond. ICE placed a detainer on Chambers, who authorities say is a Jamaican immigrant without legal status.


He was scheduled to appear in court yesterday.
