Bridgeport police detectives are seeking the public's help in identifying a suspected shooter in a homicide that happened Sunday afternoon that marks the sixth homicide of the year.
Ryan Hernandez, 21, of Bridgeport was shot in the chest and killed in the 1300 block of Park Avenue near the Olive Street intersection, police said.
Surveillance video footage shows an altercation between two men police identified as the suspected shooter. Witnesses also told police they observed a confrontation before gunfire broke out. The video shows Hernandez and the suspected shooter arguing before the reported shooting and then the suspect flees into a car driving by after the victim falls to the ground partially off-camera.
The suspected shooter took off in a vehicle police described as a "dark-colored sedan" with other people in the car, police said.
Hernandez was transported to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport, but was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Detectives are reviewing security video footage that could identify any suspects or the getaway vehicle.
Police ask anyone with information to contact Det. Robert Winkler at 203-581-5224.
