Man killed after being shot in the head in Bridgeport
BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) - A 21-year-old man was shot in the head in Bridgeport while sitting in a vehicle Sunday night.
A passer-by on his way to the gym called 911 after he noticed a pair of feet popping out of a trash bag.
“I saw two feet — what appeared to be feet, they had socks on them — hanging out of a trash bag,” Israel Savage, 39, told The News. “There were multiple trash bags around this package, some cardboard and a carpet. And it was all taped.”
“It was heavy, so that made me suspicious that maybe it’s not a mannequin,” Savage said.
Lewis lived in Brooklyn. No arrests have been made.
