The family of a Bridgeport murder victim is calling on police to make an arrest in the case seven months after 26-year-old Manny Cobb was shot to death on Brooks Street.
The victim's dad says police know who pulled the trigger, and where that person is.
Police tell News 12 the case remains open and active.
"You know, I just want some justice. I just want them to tell me something. You know, a victim's advocate was supposed to reach out to me; they never did, and every time I would call and speak to the detective, I was just getting, 'nothing new, nothing new' -- and, you know, it just hurts," says Leroy Cobb.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call 203-576-TIPS.
Manny's brother set up a GoFundMe to help hire a lawyer.
