    An 18-year-old Bridgeport man is dead after he was shot during a robbery in the Green Homes housing project in Bridgeport Thursday afternoon, according to city officials.

    Officials said it appears Jeri Kollock was robbed in the stairwell of building one around 4:30 p.m. and forced to strip naked and remove his jewelry.

    Kollock was shot several times. 

    Officials said he fled down the stairs to the basement, where he collapsed, but managed to drag himself over the next 45 minutes to the door, where he emerged, yelling for help.

    Officials said he died before medics arrived.
