BRIDGEPORT — The driver of a vehicle was arrested in the city late Thursday night after opening fire into a small group of people, according to police officials.

The incident happened in the area of Taft Avenue around 11 p.m. Thursday, police spokesman Terron Jones said on Saturday.

Although the shooter’s bullets didn’t hit anyone, another person — who holds a valid pistol permit — returned fire at the shooter, Jones said.

The initial shooter was arrested, but the name, age and charges of that person were not provided Saturday. The person who returned fire acted in self-defense, Jones said, and was not charged by police.

Jones said there was no further information available Saturday.
