Police are investigating a fatal daytime shooting in Bridgeport.

Authorities say the shooting happened around 9:40 a.m. Tuesday.

Capt. Brian Fitzgerald says the 34-year-old victim was struck once in the torso, and he collapsed at the scene. He was transported to Bridgeport Hospital, where he later died.

The man’s name has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

Fitzgerald says investigators believe the man’s death was not a random act of violence. He says the victim was shot before in 2013, but he recovered.

An investigation is ongoing.

Half of the city’s six homicides this year have been during daylight hours.
