Bridgeport police have identified the victim of the city's latest homicide.
Mayro Santiago, 35, was found shot to death on East Main Street at 1:25 p.m. Monday, according to police.
The shooting happened less than a mile away from where Keijahnae Robinson, a 15-year-old girl, was shot and killed outside a home on Saturday morning.
Mi Lin Zhao, a 30-year-old restaurant owner, was also killed when he was shot during a robbery on Wood Avenue on Saturday morning, according to police.
On Saturday night, Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch issued a statement.
"This senseless tragedy has my full attention and that of our police force. We will continue to work tirelessly with the State of Connecticut, federal authorities and leaders at every level to tackle the extremely tough issue of gun violence that is impacting cities all over our country. In the near term, I look forward to the City Council's upcoming vote on the revision to the curfew ordinance, which will give us another tool to help keep order in the City," Finch said in a statement. "My thoughts and prayers are with the families of Keijahnae Robinson, and restaurant owner Mi Lin Zhao. Both are innocent victims of the widespread use of illegal guns in our society, and this strengthens my resolve to continue to advocate for the closure of illegal gun-sale loopholes through Mayor Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns effort."
