    Stratford Police are investigating after a man was shot and killed early Saturday morning.

    Officers were called to Regency Terrace around 2:20 a.m. after getting a report of a shooting.

    When police arrived, they said they found a man who had been wounded by gunfire. He was taken to Bridgeport Hospital, where he later died. Officials have not released his identity.

    A preliminary investigation revealed that two men were sitting in a parked car on Regency Terrace when they were approached by two men on foot.

    Officers believe the men exchanged words when one of the men showed a gun and fired at least one shot, hitting the victim, who was in the car.

    The two men on foot fled the area, officers said.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Stratford Police at (203) 385-4140. Information can also be shared anonymously on the Stratford Police TIP411 app.
