The shooting of a Bristol man in Danbury last July by a City Police officer was justified.  According to Hearst Connecticut Media, Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky reviewed the state police report about Officer Alex Relyea's shooting and wounding of a 31-year-old man who was carrying two knives.  While he has not yet released a written official report, Sedensky said Relyea acted appropriately when he shot Aaron Bouffard.  The 33-year-old officer joined the force in 2014 and has been on administrative leave since the shooting.  Danbury Police initially responded to a report of an assault at MCCA and learned that the suspect fled the scene.  Police say Bouffard refused to obey commands to drop the knives as he approached officers.
