GROTON, Conn. (AP) - A man suspected in the killing of a good Samaritan who intervened in an assault outside a bar has been detained at the Canadian border.

Groton Police Chief L. J. Fusaro says 30-year-old Dante Hughes was detained Tuesday in Canada by Canadian Border Services. He says Hughes is being held pending legal procedures to bring him back to the United States.

Police are working with the state’s attorney’s office, U.S. Marshals Service and Canadian authorities to make that happen.

Hughes is wanted in the Sunday shooting death of 24-year-old Joey Gingerella outside Ryan’s Pub.

Witnesses say people in the bar saw a man assaulting his girlfriend in a car in the parking lot. Gingerella ran out to help and was shot to death.
