Agim Beqiraj (5403)



5/23/2010: Beqiraj, reportedly despondent, was located by police in his Mitsubishi SUV parked in a Mobil gas station parking lot. Three officers approached the car. According to police descriptions, Beqiraj had shot himself in the face or mouth before they arrived with a .22 caliber pistol. When his car was blocked and he was instructed to surrender his weapon, he shot himself twice more in the face or mouth without losing consciousness. He then pointed his pistol at officers, who then shot him once in the chest in self-defense. http://www.ct.gov/csao/cwp/view.asp?A=1802&Q=494048
