Detectives from the Bridgeport Police Department are investigating the homicide of a 36-year-old man on Wednesday night.
Someone who was passing by found the victim lying on Davis Avenue, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, police said.
The victim was taken to Saint Vincent's Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Police have tentatively identified him as a 36-year-old New York man because of items he had, but they are waiting on confirmation.
On Wednesday, detectives canvassed the area to look for witnesses, but police said there were no reports of gunfire in the area so it is possible that the victim was shot at another location.
