Davis Dunavin

Reporter

Davis Dunavin loves telling stories, whether on the radio or around the campfire. He fell in love with sound-rich radio storytelling while working as an assistant reporter at KBIA public radio in Columbia, Missouri. Before coming back to radio, he worked in digital journalism as the editor of Newtown Patch. As a freelance reporter, his work for WSHU aired nationally on NPR. Davis is a proud graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism; he started in Missouri and ended up in Connecticut, which, he'd like to point out, is the same geographic trajectory taken by Mark Twain.

Police are investigating a shooting at a house party in Bridgeport that wounded 13 people early Sunday morning. No one was killed, but one person was left in critical condition after being shot in the face.

According to police, at least two shooters fired at partygoers through hedges in the house’s backyard. All  victims were in the rear part of the house. Police said most of the victims were shot in the legs and left the hospital after being treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.
