Officer shot, suspect killed during police chase in New Castle

However, the man who apparently was not initially hit kept moving toward the officer. The two then fall to the ground and the officer can be heard shouting, "let go of my gun", though he appears to be in full control of the weapon.

Two patrol officers-Eric Pessino and Scott Shumway-responded to 911 calls related to the incident and were shot by Monroe inside the Elm Street apartment.

A city spokesperson says the shooting occurred along Elm Street between Orchard Street and Sherman avenue late in the morning, CBS Connecticut reported.

The shooting of the officers led to a long standoff between authorities and Monroe, which ended around 3 p.m. when SWAT team members entered the gunman's home and shot him.

The officer fired "several" rounds and the man was struck in his upper torso. She was taken to a healing center and is recorded in basic condition.

Officials told the paper they believe the incident began as a domestic dispute. The man continued approaching the officer, despite repeated commands to stop. But the Taser proved ineffective, according to Moore.

The man then "reached toward his rear waistband area and made a threatening statement", detectives said, and the officer believed he was grabbing a weapon. The officer was wearing a protective vest and their injuries are not considered life-threatening. The investigation remains ongoing, he added.
