Man arraigned in shooting caught on video

Stamford shooting

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who police say was caught on video spraying gunfire into a crowd outside a nightclub has been ordered detained on $1 million bail.

A Stamford judge on Monday refused to lower bail for 22-year-old Dayron Wills that was set by police early Sunday after five people were wounded outside Tino’s Nightclub in Stamford. Police say none of the injuries was life-threatening.

A cellphone video shows a chaotic scene of people fleeing while the shooter fires numerous times.

Police say the shooting followed an argument over a woman, but none of the shooting victims was involved in that fight.

Wills didn’t enter pleas to assault and other charges at Monday’s arraignment. His lawyer says he will seek lower bail.
