Police: Armed Foxwoods casino patron shot, falls from garage

The Associated Press

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut authorities say an armed casino patron was shot by a tribal police officer and fell from the fourth floor of a parking garage at the Foxwoods Resort Casino.

The shooting happened at around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Fox Tower parking garage at the Mashantucket resort.

State police say there was an outstanding arrest warrant for the patron, whom authorities haven't named. The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal police confronted the patron in the parking garage, where police say the patron produced a weapon, and shots were fired. The patron fell to the pavement below. It was not clear whether he died as the result of the shooting or the fall. No other injuries were reported.

The Connecticut State Police Major Crimes Unit is investigating.

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation owns and operates the casino.
