Six people were shot, two fatally, during a violent night in Bridgeport.

According to police, detectives are investigating three incidents which left six people shot early Sunday morning.

Just after midnight, police were called to a large house party at 170 Pitt St. Before officers could arrive, gunfire broke out. Three people, Najees Abraham, Michael Allison and Jamiel Thompson were all shot. 

The three men were all shot on the street as the party was ending. No one, including the victims could describe how they were shot or give a description of the suspect, according to police. 

The victims were taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center in a private vehicle. Their injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening, according to police.

Hours later, around 2:30 a.m. near the intersection of Barnum Avenue and William Street, 23-year-old Abraham Davis was shot and killed after he left a night of drinking with friends.

Davidson had been with a small group of friends, including his brother, on the sidewalk near the intersection, according to police. 

Witnesses told police they heard gunshots moments after Davidson walked away but did not see the suspect. Other witnesses told police that Davidson had been at a house party on Pitt Street earlier.
