Questions, disagreements ensue after fatal police shooting

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A fatal shooting by police in Connecticut has raised questions about whether officers did enough to diffuse the situation and the fallibility of stun guns. Ansonia police say one of their officers was forced to shoot Michael Gregory when Gregory came at police with a knife inside a house on Jan. 2. The officer also had fired his stun gun at Gregory, but it didn't affect Gregory. While civil liberties advocates say it appeared police did nothing but escalate the situation, police and other advocates believe the officers acted appropriately and had no choice but to use deadly force.
