Shooting victim’s father says his son lucky his injuries weren’t more serious
A Bridgeport man whose son was struck by a stray bullet while sitting inside of his home is speaking out against random gunfire.
Police say a man in his 20s was struck in the side by a bullet that went through the window of his home on Priscilla Street Saturday morning. 
They say it's not clear who did the shooting, or what the shooter's motive may have been.
A man, who didn't want to be identified, told News 12 his son was the person struck by the gunfire and he was lucky that his injuries were not more serious.
The victim's father said his son was released from the hospital after being treated in the emergency room.
Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez says random gunfire can be just as deadly as a targeted shooting.
