Bridgeport family struggles to cope with murder

The family of Iroquois Alston, 27, who was found shot to death in Norwalk last weekend, says it is struggling to cope with his murder.

Police say the bodies of Alston and Rickita Smalls, 22, both of Bridgeport, were found in a car stopped in an awkward position on the side of Avenue B. There were bullet holes in the door and windows were shattered.

Alston's family says although he recently served an eight-year jail sentence, he was focused on moving on with his life in a positive way, and it hopes others can do the same.
