Police shooting of Hartford man in 2020 ruled justified

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut's inspector general has ruled that a police officer was justified in shooting to death an armed Hartford man despite a plea from the man's girlfriend not to kill him. Shamar Ogman was shot to death on Dec. 26, 2020, in a parking lot after ignoring commands to drop a rifle that he pointed at officers, according to the report released Wednesday. In a phone call with police, Ogman's girlfriend had reported that he was at her home in a rage and was armed, but pleaded with the dispatcher to tell police not to kill him.
