Man shot, killed in Bridgeport's North End

A deadly shooting in Bridgeport's North End left a family grieving this holiday season.



Authorities say the victim was shot around 12:30 a.m. behind a building on North Avenue and then stumbled into the parking lot of a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, where he collapsed and was later pronounced dead.



Police Chief AJ Perez says the 27-year-old male victim, who was not from Bridgeport, was shot at close range.



The crime marks the 10th homicide in Bridgeport in 2016, according to Perez.



Police were still working to determine a motive.
