Suspect arrested in shooting captured on video

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) -- A Connecticut man has been arrested on charges he sprayed gunfire into a crowd outside a downtown Stamford nightclub, injuring five in a chaotic scene captured on video.

Police say none of the injuries early Sunday morning was life-threatening.

Twenty-two-year-old Dayron Wills was charged with five counts of first-degree assault and held on $1 million bond. It was not known if he is represented by a lawyer.

Police in the area heard the gunshots at about 1:30 a.m. and found that four men and a woman were shot.

The video taken on a mobile phone by someone standing near the shooter is dark and blurry. The gunman can be seen firing his weapon dozens of times into the crowd as people flee for cover.
