Connecticut trooper arraigned in death of Mubarak Soulemane

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) - A white Connecticut state trooper who fatally shot a 19-year-old Black man following a high-speed chase in 2020 has been arraigned on a manslaughter charge. Trooper Brian North said nothing during the brief appearance Tuesday in Milford Superior Court and is free on bail. He did not enter a plea. His case was continued to June 2. North fired seven gunshots into the driver's-side window of a stolen car after a chase that ended in West Haven. Mubarak Soulemane was killed. Police say he was holding a knife. The state inspector general concluded the shooting was not justified because Soulemane was boxed in and unable to flee.
