BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Police say a woman shot in the head in Bridgeport last weekend has died.

Capt. Brian Fitzgerald says 26-year-old Elianna Cruz was shot just after 9 p.m. Saturday while sitting in a parked car on Main Street.

She was taken to the hospital in critical condition and police say she died at about 3 p.m. Wednesday. An autopsy is scheduled.

Cruz was sitting in the passenger seat of a car near a restaurant when someone emerged from the side of the building and fired multiple times at the vehicle.

No arrests have been announced but police say they are pursuing “strong leads.”
