Officers from the Bridgeport Police Department responded to the PT Barnum apartments on Bird Street, near building four, shortly before 2 a.m. on Friday, July 10, where there were reports of gunshots.

Officers on patrol in the area responded to the area, where he was met by a large crowd, Bridgeport Police Capt. Brian Fitzgerald said. At the scene, they found Bridgeport resident Teon Kelly on the ground suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Kelly was transported to Bridgeport Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The death marks the 10th homicide in Bridgeport this year and the fourth in a month.
