From Doing It Local:
Just after 1am Thursday morning Bridgeport police received calls of shots fired at 455 Trumbull Avenue with multiple victims. When I arrived a crime scene had been established across the street. Unofficially 9 people were shot and 1 killed as a result.
Police were challenged to keep up with the total number of people shot becaue not only did they have the victims at the scene but also victims were showing up in private vehicles at St. Vincent’s Hospital including the person who died from their wounds.
Radio reports say some people were shot through the walls of their apartments. After an initial police investigation police learned the shooting did start in front of 455 and moved across the street with guns blazing. More than likely people shot through the walls were innocent bystanders
