A state judge has set bail at $1.5 million for a man arrested in connection with a shootout in Westbrook in which a trooper was injured and another man was shot to death by police. Sebastian Award, 24, of Deep River was arraigned Monday in Middletown Superior Court on charges including attempted murder and robbery. His lawyer says he did not fire a shot. State Police say Award and Jonathan Alvarado, 24, of Deep River robbed a motel in Old Saybrook last week and led police on a chase into Westbrook that ended with a crash and shootout. Police killed Alvarado. State Police Detective Scott Wisner was shot but survived. Award also was injured. He appeared in court after being discharged from a hospital. He is due back in court May 14.
