It was a wild scene in Bridgeport after an initial report of shots fired in a home.  When police arrived on Roberts Street around 9:30, they encountered fire.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a woman hanging out a third-floor window.  She was rescued.  Due to the reports of gunfire, firefighters had to attack from the outside until police gave the all clear.  That’s when officers found a man on the third floor, who they took out through the rear of the home.

Right now, officers say there’s no evidence of gunfire.

Both the man and woman’s conditions are not yet known.
