BRIDGEPORT - A funeral was held today for a Bridgeport man who was shot and killed in a road rage incident last week.

Friends and family of 21-year-old Jeffrey Parlemon gathered this afternoon at St. Augustine Cathedral.

Investigators say the shooting last Sunday started with a complicated road rage incident and that the man who shot Parlemon did so in self defense.

Parlemon's family says he was a gentle and loving person. They say they don't believe Parlemon was shot in self defense and have hired a lawyer to help clear his name.

Investigators say the man who shot Parlemon is not facing charges in this case, but has been charged in another fatal shooting.
