Bridgeport, Conn.(WTNH)- Dozens of gunshots rang out over the weekend in one Bridgeport neighborhood, sending three victims to the hospital.

It happened Sunday night outside of a market on Reservoir Avenue.

At least 30 gunshots rang out in the residential area. One resident says this is a daily occurrence and he says he and other neighbors are constantly afraid for their lives.

"Basically you're like in jail here."

A prisoner in his home. That's what a Bridgeport resident, who doesn't want his identity revealed, says he feels like every single day. He says the daily sound of gunshots in his neighborhood have forced his family inside.

"I have an 8 year old and after a certain hour in the afternoon he goes inside. Basically it's video games and tv, what can you do. Because you're afraid to just leave him out here you know a lost bullet doesn't have a name," he says.
Fear of getting shot by people hungry for violence is so great that the streets have fallen silent.

"After certain hours in the day it turns into a ghost town where you don't see anybody out here anymore," he says.

The neighbors have also fallen silent, too afraid to speak out about the violence.

"You speak out and next thing you know you got bullet holes all over your house," he explained.

He says while he hears gunshots every night, he rarely sees police reacting.

"You run a red light or something and they're all over you, but when you hear something like that go off in the middle of the night, nobody seems to care," he said. "You're expecting to hear the sirens and see cops around, but you don't see anybody."

That's says it all right there.... Let's blame the cops for doing nothing even though they get no information from the people that know....

This is what happens wherever Negroes reside in large numbers. Violence and criminality reign supreme. That's why it is imperative that these animals be segregated from humans immediately, so they can only victimize each other.

If they do come to Bridgeport, they only come with many body guards. Maybe not.
