Police say a fight Sunday evening led to a deadly shooting in Bridgeport.
They say José Perez Ortiz, of Monroe, was killed at the corner of Noble Avenue and Shelton Street after a fight outside the La Patrona market.
Officials say that security video, which has not been released, makes it appear that the man who shot Ortiz may have been acting in self-defense because it appears Ortiz had a knife.
