The parents of a man gunned down on April 3 in Fair Haven thanked police Thursday for a swift arrest in the murder.

Asadrbal Bernier, Sr. and Nerailda Morales (pictured above with Officer Jillian Knox) spoke Thursday at a press conference at police headquarters.

“Thank you. God bless you,” Morales said.

Their son, Asadrbal Bernier, Jr. who’s 31, was fatally shot on April 3 in front of 145 Wolcott St. in Fair Haven.

Detectives caught up with a 30-year-old man leaving court Thursday morning and charged him with the murder.

Assistant Police Chief Archie Generoso said the shooting stemmed from “a dispute between two individuals who knew each other.” Police also seized three weapons with a search warrant; they believe one may be the murder weapon. The triggerman got into a fight with Bernier, then shot him multiple times, police said.

Before moving to New Haven, the murder suspect was convicted in Puerto Rico of carjacking and kidnapping, for which he served 12 years in jail.

Generoso credited Sgt. Tony Reyes, Mike Wuchek, and Sgt. Al Vazquez with solving the case.

“They hardly slept since last week,” he said.
