Man Shot In East End

From Steve Krauchick, Doing It Local:

Just after 9 pm Monday night, a shooting occurred at the intersection of Stratford Avenue and Union Avenue in front of A&J Variety store. A 19 year old male was struck by gunfire and was transported by private vehicle to Bridgeport Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition. A crime scene exists at the shooting location, and the Detective Bureau Identification Unit is processing the scene. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Bridgeport Police Tips Line at 203-576-TIPS (8477).



  1. A shooting on the East End and the other day a shooting on the East Side. Nothing new here folks, these kids shoot each other and they can’t tell you why. Another example of guns in the wrong hands and no other way to solve their differences whatever they are. This is also another reason the East End is going stay on its face.

    Where are the community leaders to speak out against this shooting? Why aren’t they kicking in Joe’s office door demanding he tell his boy AJ to put some cops on Stratford Avenue???!!!

  2. Two more shot tonight 12/27/16. If the cops could curb the loitering there wouldn’t be anyone out there to get shot.

    Give these stores a time to close; as they are right now they don’t close. These stores are part of the problems on Stratford Avenue.
