The Price Of Freedom

— A Norwich police officer was shot as many as five times Monday by a man police said was trying to commit suicide by provoking police to shoot him.

The officer, identified as Jonathan Ley, was reported to be in critical condition at Yale-New Haven Hospital, a hospital spokesman said Monday night.

Ley, a 14-year department veteran, suffered gunshot wounds to his neck, shoulder and leg, a witness said.

As of late Monday night, the man who shot Ley was holed up in an apartment building at 99 Cedar St. Police negotiators were trying to communicate with him, Norwich Deputy Chief Warren L. Mocek said. Police have not released his identity.
Where's the outrage? Oh, too soon? Excuse us.
