Suspect wanted in connection to gas station murder arrested

Metro gang detectives Monday afternoon arrested the wanted felon suspected to be involved in a double homicide at a Brick Church Pike gas station last month.

A federal complaint named Christopher Bridges, 20, alleging he, as a convicted felon, illegally possessed a firearm in connection with the Aug. 21 shootout that left Stephen Kimbro, 23, and Jeremy Frelix, 22, dead.

Police arrested Bridges (aka “Trigga” and “Lil Keezy”) at 2624 Welshcrest Drive. Metro police said the investigation by North Precinct detectives found that Bridges was present during the fatal shooting in the parking lot of a Brick Church Pike Citgo market.

Bridges, according to police, allegedly hid a pistol in some nearby woods before fleeing the scene.

In June, Bridges received a six-year probation sentence for cocaine and firearm convictions. Metro police, along with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, continue to investigate the Aug. 21 shooting.
