The Daily News is reporting that a Connecticut man enraged that his pregnant girlfriend wouldn't get an abortion allegedly hired a hitman to kill her, according to court documents.

Carlton Bryan, 21, was riding with Shamari Jenkins, who was four months pregnant, when she was fatally shot April 29 while driving in Hartford's North End, police said. 

Alleged trigger man Matthew Allen Hall-Davis fired through the back window and struck 20-year-old Jenkins.

Bryan's bail was set at $2.5 million, and he was charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, carrying a pistol without a permit and second-degree making a false statement.

Police said the gun — a .44-caliber magnum revolver — belonged to Bryan, but his friend, Hall-Davis, was the shooter.

Hall-Davis, 24, allegedly confessed to the shooting, but told police that he intended to double-cross Bryan and shoot his friend instead — not Jenkins, The Journal Inquirer reported.
