MONROE, Conn. — A 21-year-old Monroe man who illegally fired a gun in a residential neighborhood was arrested Wednesday on multiple weapons charges, police said.
The Monroe Police Department took a complaint from an individual who found a firearm in the garage of the home. Through an investigation, officers determined that the undocumented weapon had been recently fired in a residential area on Elm Street by Marcus Bonaparte.
Bonaparte is restricted from owning or possessing firearms, due to previous convictions and because he has a protective order against him, police said.
Bonaparte was charged with criminal possession of a pistol/revolver, criminal use of a firearm or electronic defense weapon, first-degree reckless endangerment and criminal violation of a protective order.
He was held on $5,000 bond and arraigned at Bridgeport Superior Court.
