Port Chester police have made an arrest in connection with a Feb. 7 which claimed the life of a Port Chester man.
Details about the arrest haven't yet been released.
The victim, 23-year-old Carlos Guiracocha, was pronounced dead after paramedics arrived at 4 a.m.
Detectives and patrol units have been out in force since the homicide, canvassing neighborhoods and following leads from community members. Several surveillance cameras on Poningo Street had an angle on the crime scene, although it's not clear if footage from those cameras assisted police in the investigation.
