An arrest was made Wednesday in the murder of a Bronx man discovered dumped on a dirt road in Greenwich earlier this month.Authorities say the body of 49-year-old George McPherson, of the Bronx, was found January 14 on Sterling Road. He was reportedly shot multiple times to the chest.

At least one person was placed under arrest, and Greenwich police planned to discuss the arrest at a 1 p.m. news conference.

McPherson, who was wearing no jacket despite the cold, was likely killed somewhere else and dumped on Sterling Road near Riversville Road, police said.

McPherson was of Jamaican descent. He was identified by fingerprints.
