Bridgeport Police say a man died in an early morning shooting.
They say a 26-year-old Bridgeport man was shot just before 3:00 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of Arctic and Pembroke streets.
He was found lying on the sidewalk before being taken to a hospital where he later died.
A 23-year-old Stratford man arrived at the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to his lower extremities shortly after the incident. He is in stable condition.
Police believe he was also shot at the same incident.
Police say there are multiple shooters involved and both victims appear to have been targeted.
Resident Sheronda Daniels told News 12 that her car was struck multiple times by bullets during the shooting.
“The things that are going on here are sad. Real sad,” she said.
Community activist Tony Barr says gun violence is robbing too many young people of their futures.
“We just can't continue to lose young peoples' lives in the City of Bridgeport at such an alarming rate,” he said.
Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim extended his condolences to the victim's family, along with a message to federal lawmakers.
"To prevent this from happening again in Bridgeport or anywhere, we need federal legislation finally. Common-sense gun laws to help us in this battle against this scourge of gun violence,” he said.
