Bridgeport police say they are looking for at least one gunman after a man was found shot in the head early Saturday morning.

Witnesses say they heard gunshots in the general area of Newfield Park around 3 a.m.

Police say they received a report that a man had fallen out of his car in front of Massey Fuel on nearby Hollister Avenue.

The vehicle's windows were shattered by gunfire and the scene was cordoned off as investigators spoke with witnesses and collected evidence.  

The unidentified driver was found shot in the head, but doctors say his injuries are not life-threatening. 

Police say it's not clear what led to the shooting or if there may have been multiple shooters. 

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call police.
