BRIDGEPORT — Dyshon Williams was found dead on a city sidewalk about two hours after a call came in to a computerized system that shots had been fired in the area.

The 19-year-old Cowles Street resident was shot around 10:45 p.m. Monday. He was pronounced dead after police found him roughly two hours later on Boston Avenue, according to Police Chief Armando Perez.

Officers were initially sent to the area of the north parking lot of the Luis Munoz Marin School, 479 Helen St., for a report of shots fired. There, police found Williams’ car, unoccupied. Though officers tried to canvass the area for a victim, the chief said, Williams wasn’t nearby.

“He was shot and he ran away from the vehicle,” Perez said. “They looked but they couldn’t find him.”

Investigators did find blood in an empty car in the lot.

“They decided to do a more thorough search and they found the body,” near the firehouse at 950 Boston Ave., Perez said.

He said Williams was dressed in dark clothing and had collapsed on the sidewalk.

Williams died from a single gunshot wound to the torso “with penetration to the neck,” according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

“It was such an unfortunate thing,” Perez said of Williams’ death.

The case remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call 203-576-8477.
