BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Police in Bridgeport have arrested two city residents in connection with the death of a 41-year-old man who was struck by a thrown brick.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/2dEJB2L ) that 33-year-old Anthony Martinez and 41-year-old Mari Vargas were both charged with first-degree murder in the July 16 death of Edy Morales.

Investigators say Martinez and Vargas were among a group of people on Jane Street that threw objects at a Jeep Cherokee.

A brick smashed through the front passenger side window of the Jeep and struck Morales in the head. After having trouble breathing, Morales was taken to a hospital and was pronounced dead.

Police said the suspects were identified on surveillance video and when questioned told detectives that the occupants of the vehicle had been disrespectful to them.
