Man found shot to death in Bridgeport


BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — Detectives in Bridgeport are investigating the shooting death of a New York City man in the Black Rock section of the city.

The victim has been identified as 36-year-old Ernesto Reyes-Santos, of Brooklyn, New York.

Reyes-Santos was found by a  passerby lying in the street on Davis Avenue, just after 9:30 Wednesday night. He died at Saint Vincent’s Medical Center an hour later.

A police spokesman said there were no reports of gunfire in the area, so they’re investigating whether the man was shot somewhere else.
