The 30-year-old man who shot a city police officer Monday night died of a self-inflicted gunshot, according to state police.
Police sources say that Jason Razzino had at least three weapons – a Mini-14 rifle and two handguns. He began firing at the police when they arrived, state police said.
Officer Jonathan Ley was wounded during the exchange of gunfire, police said. The condition of Ley, who was shot multiple times, has been upgraded from critical to serious. Ley was initially taken to The William W. Backus Hospital and later flown by Life Star to Yale-New Haven Hospital.
