Male Shot At Captain’s Cove

A male was shot near the boardwalk and parking lot of Captain’s Cove Seaport Tuesday night, according to police. Steve Krauchick of Doing It Local, who shares a video above, reports that witnesses heard at least six shots. The victim was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.

Captain’s Cove has long been a waterfront oasis drawing patrons from throughout the region. It is the brainchild of Kaye Williams who transformed a ratty city marina, sandwiched by public housing units, the old municipal dump and a sewage treatment plant, into a popular summer destination of entertainment, shopping and relaxation.

Anyone with information should call 203-576-TIPS.

  1. It is time to change the laws for carrying an illegal gun. Instead of 1 year ( which is seldom given). Make the law a mandatory 10 years for carrying an illegal gun. Will this fill the prison probably for a short period. Even to dumbest of the dumb will know 10 years is a lot of time.

  2. This is not good. The Cove is one of the few places in Bridgeport that folks from out of town seem willing to patronize. This shit keeps up and we’ll be listening to a lot of crickets.

  3. Thanks to Joe Ganim, Mario Testa and the City Council members beholden to the corrupt DTC machine. Everyone wants to ride the gravy train but no one wants to earn the fare.

    1. Joe Ganim ran on campaign promises to crack down on criminal activity in Bridgeport. When is he going to start? 19 homicides this year and its only mid-July. Way to go, Joe. Now the stain of gun violence has spread to Black Rock, one of the safest neighborhoods in the city. Way to go, Joe.
      Just heard there’s a raging fire at the old GCI rubber factory building, abandoned by the corporate owners to fall to disrepair. Now toxic smoke is wafting over nearby residential areas. The people living there can’t afford to move so they are fucked one more time by a corrupt political machine.
