A 23-year old man was shot and killed on a city street early Sunday. On the same night, a 24-year old woman was killed in a domestic violence incident. Violent crimes and robberies in Bridgeport are reportedly down so far this year, after a double digit reduction last year. But as the summer weather heats up, there’s generally a spike in violent crime.</p><p></p><p></p> Tue, 08 Jul 2014 22:35:18 +0000 Craig LeMoult 20333 at http://wshu.org Bridgeport mayor asks for community cooperation, following weekend violence Norwalk, Bridgeport receiving $40 million in federal grants to become more storm resilient http://wshu.org/post/norwalk-bridgeport-receiving-40-million-federal-grants-become-more-storm-resilient <p></p><p>Federal officials announced on Monday they're giving tens of million of dollars to two cities in Connecticut to make them more storm resilient.
