Police in Bridgeport say they are investigating a deadly shooting that apparently stemmed from a domestic dispute.
The Bridgeport Police Crime Scene Unit says a homicide occurred at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, located at 245 Huntington Turnpike, at around 1:20 a.m. Sunday.
Police say 36-year-old Griselle Pizarro, of Bridgeport, fatally shot Jacob Lopez in a pickup truck parked outside the hall after he reportedly assaulted her.
After Lopez was shot, he allegedly told police, "Griselle shot me." Lopez was rushed to Bridgeport Hospital and was pronounced dead at around 6 a.m.
Police picked up Pizarro from her residence and took her to the police department, where they say she admitted to shooting Lopez. They recovered the .40-caliber handgun that she had in her purse when Lopez allegedly began attacking her.
Authorities say Lopez had a history of domestic violence.
Pizarro is being charged with murder. Her bond has been set at $500,000.
