    Hartford police have arrested two people in connection with a fatal shooting behind Bulkeley High School in Hartford earlier this month.

    Police said 34-year-old Jorge Alicea was found shot in the rear lot of the school at 300 Wethersfield Avenue around 12:30 p.m. on July 11.

    School was not in session at the time.

    On Friday, police arrested 28-year-old Taichany Osorio on a conspiracy to commit murder charge.  She is being held on a $1 million bond.

    On Thursday, they arrested 23-year-old Cynthia Cruz and charged her with murder. She was held on a $1 million bond.

    Polie said the suspect and the victim knew each other.

    "As we are talking right now, detectives are interviewing the second homicide suspect. So we’re hoping to get a clearer indication as to what happened and why this did happen," said Lt. Paul Cicero of the Hartford Police Department.

    Police said Alicea did not have a weapon on him and he was riding his bike at the time of the killing.
