BRIDGEPORT - The family of a Bridgeport man shot to death by police earlier this year says they're searching for answers as to what led to the fatal shooting.

A Bridgeport police detective fatally shot Bryan Stukes, 22, outside of Golfinho Fish Market on Pequonnock Street last April.

Police say Detective Chris Borona shot Stukes after he ignored the officer's order to put down a gun.

However, Stuke's mother says investigators have not told her anything about why her son was killed.

She has filed an intent to seek compensation from the city.

The investigation into Stukes' death is being led by state police, as well as the state's attorney's office.

State attorney David Cohen says there is not anything he can say about the matter because the investigation is still active.
