    Hartford police have arrested a suspect in a fatal shooting on North Canaan Street last month.

    On June 25, officers responded to a Shotspotter activation and 911 calls reporting shots fired on North Canaan Street. When officers arrived, they found a car crashed into a tree with a male victim with an apparent gunshot wound inside.

    The victim was pronounced dead on scene. He was identified as 42-year-old William Smalls.

    On Wednesday police arrested 42-year-old Damond Bester, of Bloomfield, on a murder charge in the case. Bester was held on a $1 million bond and is due in court Thursday.
