STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man has been arrested on charges he sprayed gunfire into a crowd outside a downtown Stamford nightclub, injuring five in a chaotic scene captured on video.

Police say none of the injuries early Sunday morning were life-threatening.

Dayron Wills, 22, was charged with five counts of first-degree assault and held on $1 million bond. It was not known if he is represented by a lawyer.

Police in the area heard the gunshots at about 1:30 a.m. and found that four men and a woman were shot. Police say Willis pulled out his gun after an altercation with another man over a woman, according to the Stamford Advocate. The man who punched Willis was not one of the five injured.

The video taken on a mobile phone by someone standing near the shooter is dark and blurry. Police say Willis fired his weapon ten times into the crowd as people flee for cover. Police hope the video encourages witnesses to come forward. "We're still piecing this together," said Stamford Police Lt. Diedrich Hohn to the Stamford Advocate. "We had five people in the hospital that we were concerned about."
