Bridgeport approves youth curfew

Bridgeport leaders have passed a citywide curfew for anyone under 17 years old.

This curfew has been in the works since January after a 14-year-old was murdered.

The vote was pushed up this week after 15-year-old Kaijahnae Robinson was shot to death outside her aunt's home on Saturday.

The American Civil Liberties Union says it will challenge the curfew.
