Bridgeport PD: Man killed in drive-by shooting
A drive-by shooting left a man dead from a gunshot wound to the head in Bridgeport Thursday morning, police say.
They say 34-year-old Cadell Moore may have been caught off guard when one or more shooters opened fire while he was fixing a car on Sixth Street near Stratford Avenue. He was not likely the intended target, according to authorities.
"To lose his life like that...it's despicable," says Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez.
Witnesses say they heard four or five gunshots there around 10:45 a.m. Some ran outside to find Moore laying on the sidewalk, bleeding. They called 911.
Police say they have surveillance video of the incident.
They say the shooting may be related to a Wednesday shooting on Newfield Avenue that left a man injured in the foot.
