Arrest In Norwich Police Shooting
State Police today arrested a man who was shot by a police officer in Norwich last year.
Gino Nicasia had locked himself in a car in a parking lot at Backus Hospital, where his mother had brought him, because he was hearing voices.
A state investigation found that the officer acted properly, when he shot the Norwich man.
The state report found that Nicasia drove a car towards the officer, striking his right hip, as the officer pushed Nicasia’s mother out of the way, and opened fire at the car.
Nicasia is charged with assault on a police officer and interfering with a police officer.
