Fatal shooting by police task force under investigation

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Authorities say a federal and local law enforcement task force has shot a person to death in Connecticut's capital city while trying to arrest a man with a history of illegally possessing firearms. Authorities say no agents or officers were injured in Wednesday's shooting in Hartford, and the man they were seeking to arrest was taken into custody but not shot. Police say the person who died exchanged gunfire with the task force members. Officials charged Brandon Spence for violating the conditions of his release from prison stemming from a weapons conviction. Spence's lawyer did not return a message seeking comment.
