“Undercover operations are some of the most dangerous work in law enforcement and are the hallmark of the Urban Violence Task Force. They are true professionals who are tasked with reducing gang and gun violence in Bridgeport.  Their success to-date is unprecedented.  They were assisted by members of the Bridgeport Police Detective Bureau.” said Chief Joseph L. Gaudett Jr.  “One of the suspects pointed a handgun at police, forcing officers to discharge their weapons. Two handguns were recovered inside the car.”

“Currently, there are investigations by the State Police Major Crimes Squad as well as the Bridgeport and State Police Internal Affairs offices, all standard procedure in incidents like this.”
