After more than six months, a state prosecutor has determined a police-involved fatal shooting in Fairfield was justified.
The shooting happened in February after police say Christopher Andrews attacked his wife and children with a baseball bat and a knife inside their home.
The report says Officer Sean Fenton was forced to open fire on Andrews after he came at the officer with a knife and refused to drop it.
Prosecutors say Fenton had no choice but to shoot Andrews four times to save himself and the family.
The report also says there was nothing in Andrews' system that could have potentially explained his behavior that day.
Police say Andrews' family described him as possessed at the time of the attack.
