Bridgeport police are investigating after a man was fatally shot in the head in front of his young son and two other children Saturday night.
The incident occurred at around 11 p.m. on Monroe Street.
Police identified the victim as 35-year-old Curtis Stephens.
Investigators say Stephens was walking into a house with three young children, one of them his own son, when the gunman walked up to the victim and shot him in the head.
Police say Stephens appeared to have been living under a false name because he faced an arrest warrant stemming from previous drug offense.
Stephen's death marks the seventh murder in Bridgeport during 2014.
Authorities are asking anyone with information on the investigation to call them.
