State Police have released the name of the man killed during an officer involved shooting in Danbury last week. The state medical examiner’s office confirmed that a man named 45-year old Paul Arbitelle died of gunshot wounds to the torso and extremities Saturday night. The death has been ruled a homicide.
The unit of Glen senior Apartments where police responded, according to public records, belong to the man's mother. Arbitelle has a lengthy criminal history, including a conviction for a racially motivated attack on a black man on State Street in Danbury several years ago.
Danbury Housing Authority staff hosted a community meeting Monday with crisis counselors to speak with residents who needed help.
