BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — The 28-year-old man who was killed in Bridgeport's first homicide of 2016 was shot to death while he was being robbed Thursday night, according to the Connecticut Post.
Javoni Patton was shot several times at close range near his car at Stratford and Connecticut avenues near the Stratford border, a few blocks from his home on Elizabeth Street.
Police said Patton was likely killed during an attempted robbery because his personal items were strewn about and his driver’s door was open, police told the Post.
Police are asking anyone with information on the homicide to contact Detective Robert Winkler at 203-581-5224.
The last homicide in Bridgeport occurred Christmas Eve, when 14-year-old Luis Colon was an innocent bystander in a drug-related shooting. A total of 19 homicides were reported in Bridgeport last year.
