This incident brings the total number of homicides in Bridgeport since Jan. 1, 2015 to 14.
Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Detective Robert Winkler at (203) 581-5224.
The killer must’ve sold his gun to Mayor Finch and Chief Gaudett.
Maybe Torres has an idea you would like to elaborate on?
Kid, he was not stabbed with a gun!
Jesus Christ, you are slow on the uptake. He used a knife because he sold his gun. Stop it with the dumbass routine. It doesn’t suit you.
Bridgeport Kid, I got it the first time. 🙂 I hit send before it registered. Forgive me. It was a humorous remark, but a very sad situation.
Goldenrod and Madison, this is just sad. Very quiet neighborhood. Domestic or gang-related for sure. Where is Ganim for the photo op when you need him? Perhaps News 12 can find him for a comment.
I think Bill Finch has a knife buyback scheduled for next week. It is right outside of Globe Equipment supply on Maplewood.
