Who is Nicholas Brutcher ?
A third officer was seriously injured in the violence in Bristol, authorities said, and a suspect was also killed. The police chief called it an act of “senseless violence.”
Two police officers were shot and killed Wednesday night and another was critically injured while responding to what appeared to be a fake emergency call in Bristol, Connecticut, authorities said. A man suspected of opening fire also died at the scene, police said.
Connecticut State Police identified the slain officers as Sergeant Dustin Demonte, 35, and Alex Hamzy, 34, both members of the Bristol Police Department.wikipedia
The third officer, Alec Iurato, 26, suffered a serious gunshot wound, Chief Brian Gould of the Bristol Police Department said at a news conference. Iurato, who was hired as an officer in 2018, was taken to surgery at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, the chief said. Local news reports said he was released around 11 a.m.
State Police said in a statement that their investigation suggested a 911 call had been made in a “deliberate act to lure” officers into an apparent ambush.
The call to the police department in Bristol, a city in central Connecticut about 80 miles northeast of New York City, came in at 10:29 p.m. on Wednesday, reporting a possible domestic incident between two brothers, Sgt. said Christine Jeltema of the Connecticut State Police.
When officers arrived, the suspect, Nicholas Brutcher, was standing outside the home on Redstone Hill Road and immediately began shooting, authorities said. Mr. Hamzy was shot and killed at the scene, while Sergeant Demonte was taken to hospital and pronounced dead there.
Mr. Brutcher Shooting
Mr. Brutcher, 35, was shot to death outside the home, State Police said. His brother, Nathan Brutcher, 32, was also shot and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. His status is unknown.
Norberto Rodríguez, who lives across the street from where the shooting occurred, said he saw a man dressed in camouflage come out of the house with a gun. Another man ran out, apparently to grab him, and the man with the rifle shot him, Rodriguez said.
