Officers responded to the scene and found that 57-year-old Philip Ingram, of Bridgeport, had been shot and was critically injured. He was taken to Bridgeport Hospital where he died from his injuries.
An investigation revealed that there had been a verbal altercation between Ingram and another man before the other man brandished a weapon and followed Ingram, who had called police. While officers were en route to the scene, shots were fired.
The scene was processed by police and witnesses were interviewed.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Bridgeport police at 203-576-TIPS.
