January 26, 2019

BRIDGEPORT — A student of the New England Tractor Trailer Training School was shot Saturday morning and is serious but stable condition, according to Police Chief Armando Perez.

The shooting happened in broad daylight, around 11 a.m., near the NETTTS on Barnum Avenue.

The victim, who Perez said is from New Haven and a student at the school, appears to have been the intended target of the shooting.

Perez said the shooting was captured by nearby cameras and shows the suspect walk up to the victim as he was walking to his car and fire a gun at least six times. It was unclear how many of those bullets hit the victim.

“It looks like he’s going to survive,” Perez said. “He’s in serious but stable condition at Bridgeport Hospital.”

No suspect has been apprehended as of later Saturday, but the chief said detectives are actively investigating.
