Fatal Bridgeport shooting case goes to jury

The jury finished day one of deliberations in a 2001 Bridgeport murder case without a verdict.

Miguel Zapata is accused in the shooting death of 24-year-old Zoltan Kiss. Police say Kiss had gone to Pembroke Street to buy the drug ecstasy when he was shot at least 18 times. Kiss was in town from Canada visiting his father at the time.

On Wednesday, a witness for the defense refused to testify in the trial. Both sides gave closing arguments Thursday before the jury got the case.Deliberations will continue tomorrow.
