BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim and Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez will host a community forum on gun violence from 7:15-8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Trumbull Gardens Community Room in Bridgeport.

The streets around the Trumbull Gardens housing complex have been the scene of violence in what is believed to be an ongoing dispute between rival gangs from the complex and the Greene Homes on the city’s West Side.

In June of 2015, gunfire erupted outside the apartments, leaving one man dead and eight others injured.

The Trumbull Gardens Community Room is at 505 Trumbull Ave., Bridgeport.
