BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Police say a man was shot to death and a woman was injured in an early morning shooting in Bridgeport.

Police tell the Connecticut Post that the victims were found shot in a parked car just after midnight Monday.

The victims were identified as 25-year-old Len Allen Smith and 36-year-old Georgia Comacho, both city residents.

Both were taken by ambulance to Bridgeport Hospital, where Smith was pronounced dead.

Comacho underwent surgery and is in critical condition.

Witnesses told police that another vehicle, believed to be a white Jeep Cherokee, pulled alongside the victims' car and opened fire. Several hours later, a burned vehicle matching the suspect's was recovered in Shelton.

It was the city's seventh homicide of the year.
