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.
