Police are asking the public for help identifying suspects wanted in connection to a deadly shooting this week at a gas station in Bridgeport.
The shooting happened at the Atlas gas station on Fairfield Avenue just before 5 p.m. Sunday.
Police say around 75 people riding ATVs, dirt bikes and motorcycles were gathered at the gas station when a gunman riding on the back of a scooter opened fire on the crowd.
Police say more than a dozen rounds were fired, hitting two people and killing Ramon Peguero, of Hartford.
Police say an 18-year-old was also struck by gunfire multiple times, and was listed in critical condition.
Peguero's family and friends held a vigil in Hartford Wednesday night and pleaded for anyone with information to come forward.
Anyone with information about the men seen riding on the scooter is asked to call the Bridgeport Police Tip Line at 203-576-TIPS (8477), or Detective Hanson at 203-581-5243.
