2 officers shot and killed in Connecticut, another seriously injured

Two police officers were fatally shot and another was seriously wounded in a shooting in Bristol late Wednesday night, Connecticut State Police announced.

Police have not yet released details of the incident, and it is unclear which department the officers belonged to. Local media say the shooting took place in a residential area late Wednesday night. State police responded to the scene after reports of a police shooting around 11 p.m

State police asked for prayers for the families of the fallen officers and for the officer who has been hospitalized.

“We just, like, hear gunshots like ‘pop pop pop pop pop pop’ and stop and then stop for maybe 30 seconds and then another round of ‘pop pop pop pop pop’ and then it just stopped. And then [we] started hearing sirens and everything,” Ted Krawiec, an eyewitness, told Channel 3.
