BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — An 18-year-old man who was acquitted in a fatal shooting earlier this year was nearly gunned down himself Thursday in an attempted gang hit at the Golden Hill Street courthouse in Bridgeport, according to the Connecticut Post.
The noon attack by three would-be shooters was foiled by Bridgeport police and judicial marshals, who made the arrests and seized two loaded handguns, Police Chief Armando Perez told the Post.
Fabian “Fab” Francis was in court to face criminal charges in another case when he ran into rival gang members in the courthouse lobby, the Connecticut Post said.
The confrontation moved outside, where other gang members drove down the hill with handguns pointed out the window at Francis, the Post said.
Police in a nearby car sped up to intercept it, but the car took off before stopping and the occupants bailed out and were apprehended, the Post said.
