September 28, 2018

BRIDGEPORT — A juvenile was shot in the hand in the city Friday, dispatch reports indicated.

Around 5:40 p.m., a female called police to report her boyfriend was shot in the hand. The caller told police her boyfriend left to go to the store and when he got back, he had the wound, reports indicated.

Police rushed to the 200 block of Wells Street.

Officers at the scene tried to speak to the gunshot wound victim, who they told the dispatcher was a juvenile. A sergeant and medics were requested to respond to the scene. One officer noted to the dispatcher that the victim was uncooperative when police asked questions about the wound.

Leading up to the call from the victim’s girlfriend, police had not received any calls about shots fired anywhere in the city, so it was unclear where he was shot.

By 5:52 p.m., medics were headed to Bridgeport Hospital with the victim.
