Police: Shooting victim dropped off at Bridgeport Hospital

BRIDGEPORT — Two people were wounded in separate shootings hours apart Monday, as the city continues to see a wave of gun violence.

The latest shooting took place around 9 p.m.

Officers were dispatched to Bridgeport Hospital after medical personnel alerted police to a gunshot wound victim who had been dropped off by a private vehicle.

Police said there was no further information immediately available Monday night, including where the shooting might have happened or the extent of the victim’s injuries.

Earlier Monday morning, around 2 a.m., police were dispatched to the P.T. Barnum apartment complex for a report of a person shot. Police said the individual suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the arm.

Monday’s shootings came after two fatal shootings within hours of each other Sunday.

Shortly after midnight Sunday, 31-year-old Daron Jones was found unresponsive on a Worth Street porch after he was shot once in the chest when police responded to a ShotSpotter gunfire activation ni the area, according to Capt. Brian Fitzgerald. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Not long after, around 2:20 a.m. Sunday, 21-year-old Nyair Nixon was shot multiple times inside Keystone Bar on Barnum Avenue.

Fitzgerald said after Nixon was shot, he “stumbled outside … collapsed in the street, and was then struck by a vehicle that fled the scene.”

The captain said the arriving officers were “confronted by a large, hostile crowd that were interfering with their ability to secure a crime scene.” Police had to call in police from Stratford, who stayed on scene to help for several hours.

Nixon was taken by medics to Bridgeport Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Jones marked the city’s 17th homicide of 2020, Nixon the 18th.

Sunday’s two homicides came just days after the city’s last two killings.

Around 8 a.m. Sept. 24, 36-year-old Jorge Tirado was found slumped over the wheel of a vehicle that had crashed into a tree in Black Rock, in the area of Fox Street and Canfield Avenue.

Tirado had been shot twice in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene, Fitzgerald said. He marked the city’s 15th homicide. of 2020.

Less than 12 hours later, shortly before 8 p.m., 27-year-old Raymond Sierra was shot in the 600 block of Union Avenue, Fitzgerald said. Sierra was taken to Bridgeport Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Sierra was the city’s 16th homicide this year.
