BRIDGEPORT — A man who was wounded in a shooting Wednesday afternoon likely wasn’t the intended target, according to city officials.

Police responded to the area of Iranistan Avenue and State Street around 12:30 p.m. for a report of a person shot.

The male victim was shot in the hand while walking on State Street near its intersection with Iranistan Avenue, according to Scott Appleby, the city’s director of emergency communications and emergency management. He said the victim’s injuries were non-life-threatening.

“The male party was not likely the intended target and persons of interest (were) detained,” in the area of the Greene Homes housing complex, Appleby said. He said information on the arrests would be provided as police finalized the reports and processed the suspects.

As of Thursday morning, police had not yet provided an update.
