Connecticut’s largest city has experienced a record number of shootings and murders this year. Bridgeport police attribute the spike to gang violence.  

There have been 18 homicides so far this year. At least five are believed to be gang-related.

Bridgeport Police Chief Armando Perez is alarmed. There was only one gang related murder last year, though that number may rise as three unclassified murders are still being investigated.
