Death of suspect in police shootout ruled suicide
NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — The death of a stabbing suspect who was found dead after exchanging gunfire with Norwich police has been ruled a suicide.
The Norwich Bulletin reports that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner made the determination last week.
Police say 25-year-old Brandon Uzialko was wanted for stabbing and seriously wounding his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend in October.
Days later, he traded gunfire with a Norwich police officer before fleeing on foot. He was found dead a few hours later of a gunshot wound to the head.
The officer who fired at Uzialko has been placed back on active duty. The case is still being reviewed.
