UPS driver dies after assault; co-worker taken into custody
WATERTOWN, Conn. (AP) - A UPS employee wanted in a fatal attack on an employee was arrested Wednesday, Connecticut State Police said.
The suspect, Elijah David Bertrand, 19, had been wanted by authorities since Tuesday evening when a UPS employee was found with injuries.

Bertrand has been located and taken into custody, the agency said on Twitter. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.
State troops initially responded to a call about an accident involving a UPS truck in Watertown on Tuesday evening. They found that the driver had been attacked and medics took him to a hospital where he died.
Connecticut State Police did not identify the victim or provide any information about the nature of his injuries. An autopsy should determine the cause and type of death.
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague and are working on the investigation," said UPS spokesman Matthew O’Connor.
