Bridgeport Police investigating second teenage shooting in 24 hours


BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — For the second time in as many days, Bridgeport Police are investigating a shooting involving a teenager.

Officers were called to the area of Trumbull Avenue and Terrace Circle for a report of shots fired.

Upon arrival, police found a 15-year-old black male suffering from a single gunshot wound to the back of his neck. The victim was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital where he is in critical, but stable condition. His name has not been released.

No word on if these shootings are connected.

Detectives are currently investigating both incidents, anyone with information on these cases is asked to give Bridgeport Police a call at 203-581-5201.
