Police probe latest Bridgeport shooting

Police say a Bridgeport man was shot multiple times Tuesday, in the fourth Park City shooting in just five days, leaving neighbors on edge.

According to police, the latest victim, 53-year-old Marco Johnson, was shot in the bicep and chin inside his Bunnell Street apartment. Detectives say Johnson most likely knows his assailant and continue to investigate the incident.

Neighbors say they?re worried about their safety.

?It?s scary, I kind of want to leave the neighborhood,? says one neighbor.

Police are not sure if an argument sparked the shooting, though they are confident that this was not a random act of violence.

?We?re still putting the details together,? says Lt. James Viadero. ?The main piece that we need to put it together is to speak to the victim.?

Johnson remains in critical condition at Bridgeport Hospital.
