BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH)– Bridgeport Police are investigating a homicide where a man was allegedly robbed, forced to strip naked and then shot several times Wednesday afternoon.

Police say at around 4:30 p.m., 18-year-old Jeri Kollock was killed after he was robbed in the stairway of building #1 in the Green Homes housing project. It appeared that Kollock was forced to strip naked and take off his jewelry, before he was shot multiple times.

Police say Kollock then fled down the stairs to the basement, where he collapsed. He managed to drag himself over the next 45 minutes to the door, where he yelled for help. However, police say Kollock died before medics arrived.

Initial reports indicated that Kollock may have been high on PCP.

It is unclear if there are any suspects at this time. The shooting remains under investigation.
