BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez is said to be disgusted by a not guilty verdict in an alleged gang-related shooting.

The Connecticut Post says a jury acquitted 20-year-old Undrea "Spooda" Kirkland yesterday.

Kirkland was accused of shooting a 19-year-old in 2015.

Perez says the verdict shows that juries are being intimidated by gangs.

Several suspected gang members attended the trial.
