State police have identified a Bridgeport man and a detective who shot him last night.

Detective Christopher Borona is a 15-year veteran of the force.

Shortly before 10 o’clock last night, Borona, on duty and inside the Golfinho Fish Market on Pequonnock Street, was alerted to a man brandishing a rifle outside.

Borona ordered the man, identified as 21-year-old Bryan Stukes of Bridgeport, to drop the weapon.  When Stukes didn’t comply, state police, who are now heading the investigation, say Borona shot Stukes.

Stukes fled down Benham Avenue; he was later found in a driveway on Coleman Street.  He was rushed to St. Vincent’s Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Detective Borona was not hurt, nor was anyone else.

A .22-caliber rifled was recovered from the scene.
