BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport residents say they are concerned about how freely teenagers appear to accept violence in the wake of a street brawl videotaped and posted online. Authorities say the fight started Wednesday at around 1:30 p.m. outside 1218 East Main St. Gunfire can be heard in the video as several teens attack each other on the pavement. Residents angered by recent gang activity say they cannot fathom why the teens who taped the video would be amused by the fight.
