20-25 Shots Rang Out Just After 11pm

Police were called to multiple reports of shots fired on Poplar Street just after 11pm Tuesday night.  One of the callers was EMTSs from American Medical Response who were on scene and heard 20-25 shots fired, other witnesses confirmed this report.    Witnesses report there was more than one gun being fired but it was uncertain if it was the same shooter.  Amazingly no one was shot or injured.  There was one close call for a man who lived at the corner of Poplar Street and Fairfield Avenue as shots whizzed above his head as he slept, glass from the window landing on his chest.    Witnesses told us that the shooter got out for the vehicle he was in and began picking up items in the street, possibly gun shell casing but there were plenty of them left behind.  The vehicle, a dark colored vehicle was seen speed off towards Fairfield Avenue.  Bridgeport Police immediately called Connecticut State Police expecting the car to flee onto nearby I-95.  Police are investigating.
