Family of Bryan Stukes calls for answers in his shooting by a Bridgeport police officer

The family of a man shot and killed by a Bridgeport police detective is calling for state police to release their findings on the incident.

BRIDGEPORT - The family of a man shot and killed by a Bridgeport police detective is calling for state police to release their findings on the incident.

Bridgeport police say a detective shot Bryan Stukes last year, after he ignored the officer's order to put down a gun and pointed a gun at an officer.

The attorney for the victim's' family is challenging that account and asking Gov. Dannel Malloy for help.

Bridgeport's police chief says the department is cooperating with state police and he is confident the detective's actions were justified.
