SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) -- The death of a Connecticut police sergeant who was found dead after he barricaded himself inside a hotel room has been ruled a suicide.
The state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Tuesday that 38-year-old Drew Carlson died of a gunshot wound to the head.
Police attempted to make contact with him for hours on Sunday after he barricaded himself inside a Southbury hotel. When they entered the room, they found him dead.
Carlson was a sergeant with the Danbury Police Department. He started working there in April 2004.
