Police Identify Stamford Teen Gunned Down In Bridgeport

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Police have identified a Stamford teen who was fatally shot in what investigators believe may have been a drug deal gone bad in Bridgeport this past weekend.

Officials confirmed Sunday that 18-year-old Shane Slinsky was killed at a home on Wood Terrace around 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Slinsky was found shot twice in the head and was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say Slinsky had no apparent ties to Bridgeport and it’s unclear what he was doing in town.

The incident is being investigated as the city’s sixth homicide this year. No shell casings were found in the area.

Detectives have not identified a suspect or clear motive for the shooting.

An investigation is ongoing.
