Man killed during domestic call was school psychologist
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A high school says a man fatally shot by police responding to a domestic violence call at an East Hartford home was a school psychologist.
Authorities say that 43-year-old John Carras was attacking his wife Thursday night right up until police arrived and that he then struggled with police inside the home.
Police say that there were attempts to subdue him with a stun gun but that at least one officer used lethal force.
Officials say the wife was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. Two officers suffered minor injuries and were treated at a hospital.
The Hartford Courant reported that two elementary school-age children were also home.
A statement Friday from Berlin High School Principal Eileen Eustis says Carras had been a psychologist there for the past 11 years.
