BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut state police officers have arrested a man who was shot by a Bristol officer after reporting that he was a victim of an active home invasion before he came out of the house with a gun and confronted police responding to the scene.
State police said Thursday that their investigation into the Nov. 18 incident determined that the shooting of Angel Ralph Diaz Jr. was justified. The 51-year-old suffered serious injuries.
The state police investigation also resulted in a court issuing an arrest warrant Thursday, charging Diaz with reckless endangerment, misuse of emergency 911 and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
He is being held on a 750,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in Bristol Superior Court on Friday. It was not immediately clear if he has legal representation.
