SHELTON–Months after a man was killed while bicycling in Shelton, a man has been arrested.

Police say that on December 23, 2015 a 55-year-old was bicycling around 7:34 a.m. near 504 Bridgeport Avenue when he was hit by a car. The driver left the scene, and an investigation ensued to find the person responsible.
